Drop Off New Unwrapped Toys Today in Uptown for Toys for Tots!

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

Walmart employees donating toys for this year’s Toys for Tots Toyland

The nice folks from Lassen County Toys for Tots will be collecting toys today to help fill up their Toyland at the Lassen County Fairgrounds, getting ready for the nearly 800 local children who will benefit from the annual program. Volunteers will be collecting donations all day long at the uptown Magical Country Christmas event.

Toys will be collected at the corner of Main and North Roop Streets from 9:00a.m. until after the tree lighting tonight.

If you miss today’s toy drop-off you have another chance on December 13th when Toys for Tots will be at Susanville Auto Center with KSUE/JDX raising money and accepting donations from 12:00 to 6:00p.m.

“Lets make a magical Christmas for a child in need in Lassen County this year,” says Toys for Tots organizer Terrie Ginder. “Thank You to our amazing community for their continued support.”

Already this year the program has seen an outpouring of support including one anonymous donor who contributed an enormous pallet full of toys for the cause.

“We had a very generous community member this year. Although he wishes to remain anonymous, we want him to know how truly appreciative we are to him.”

Ginder said that the donation will make a huge difference to many kids in the Toys for Tots and Angel Tree programs.

She also thanked the Lassen Regulators, who have a joined a host of local organizations helping to fund the annual Toyland. The Regulators dropped off toys and a $250 donation from a fundraiser they put on in October.

Local businesses like WalMart have donated toys and money as well.

The Lassen County Toys for Tots program works closely with Holiday with a Hero and Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program.

“All three programs strive to reach as many children and families in need in Lassen County as we can,” explains Ginder. “Please consider helping one or all three of the programs.”

“We all truly appreciate the continued support of the amazing and generous community we live in. Without them our programs would not be possible.”

If you can not make it to make a donation drop-off you can mail a check to P.O Box 171, Susanville, Ca. 96130.

Lassen County Toys for Tots is a non-profit 501c3 agency whose sole purpose is to collect cash and toy donations to assist families and children in our community during the Christmas season. All donations stay local. The agency only shops in our local businesses and stores to purchase items for the program, and they give all toys and gifts to local families and children.
