Local Organization in Need of Toys

Toys for Tots - Now through December 20th - (806) 340-9160 - amarillo-tx.toysfortots.org
"The primary goal for Toys for Tots it to provide a message of hope for our less unfortunate children. We can all do this by coming together as one community for one common interest and that's for our children to experience Christmas and receiving gifts," U.S. Navy Logistics Specialist, Melissa Torrez states. 

With Christmas quickly approaching Toys for Tots is in need of donations. 

"Right now we have 4000 toy requests. We have fulfilled a couple charitable drops. Some of our different drops groups are the Salvation Army, the City Refuge, the Victory Outreach. There's some individuals that have applied and we try to take care of those if we can. We could really use more toys to make sure we cover all of what our requests are. There's those that have struggles and we know how the economy is going and people have lost jobs and we're trying to help back fill and help these parents and children enjoy the Christmas season with toys," explains assistant coordinator, John Hamlin. 

'Tis the season to give back and restore the sense of community within Amarillo. 

"I do it because I love children and I have children of my own that are grown and I now have grandchildren," Melissa says. 

"It's a beatiful program. It does help those that are less fortunate. It's horrible to be stuck at Christmas and your parents are just in a hard spot and they can't pick up and give you those gifts that they want to give you the gifts they want to give you because we all want to give children the gifts and show love."

A simple, but meaningful way to bring holiday joy to those that are in need of a little extra support during the Christmas season.

"The toys can be dropped off at any Walmart, Walgreens or Dollar General. They can come by the Navy Reserve Center and ring the bell and drop them off here. We prefer new toys in the $10 to $30 range. Any age group is great, especially the smaller children. The 8 years old and under and we try to give them a good feeling at Christmas."
