This year marks the 65th Anniversary of the National Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program, which United Way coordinates locally.
Today through Dec. 5 we will be collecting donations of new, unwrapped toys. The toys will then be distributed to children in need in the Grand Forks community ranging in age from 0 to 12 years.
In 2011, 287 families with 647 children qualified for the program. Families were referred by United Way partner agencies, Head Start, Grand Forks County Social Services or Grand Forks Public Schools.
2012 Collection Sites:
Grand Forks Air Force Base
Gorecki Alumni Center (2nd floor)
UND Memorial Union & Greek Houses
Donations may also be dropped off at the United Way office
