Toys for Tots Sees Increase in Requests from Families

If you know a family in need this holiday season, Toys for Tots is doing their part in ensuring that every boy and girl can unwrap a gift this Christmas.

This year, they say they’ve already seen more requests come in from the 14 agencies that they serve.

The program typically distributes toys to around 6,000 children across Northern Michigan. They say that there isn’t a better time than now to give in order to put a smile on each child this holiday season.

“So now is the time to think about it. Now’s the time. If you’re out shopping, pick up a toy, drop it off at one of our drop off locations. And we have over 100. And that’s where the generosity of Northern Michigan residents comes in. That’s where people say I want to make sure that every child in Northern Michigan has a great Christmas,” Mike Kent, Northwest Michigan Toys for Tots Assistant Coordinator, said.
