SEANC District 65 is holding a Toys for Tots toy drive Aug. 28 through Sept. 5 at East Carolina University.
Individuals wishing to donate toys for to brighten the holiday for needy children may deliver the items to the Thomas Professional Building or arrange for pickup by contacting Lynn Tuthill at 252-744-3284 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Member of SEANC 65 will take donations from this area to Greensboro, adding the toys to a statewide collection during the annual SEANC Convention. The collection will then go to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, who will distribute them to needy children across the state through their Toys for Tots campaign.
SEANC members are asking that individuals refrain from donating stuffed animals or books (many of these items are left over from last year). They will not accept realistic looking toy weapons and gifts with food. All toys should be unwrapped and appropriate for children 12 and under.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is this year’s community service project for the 29th Annual SEANC Convention.
For more information, contact Tuthill or a board member of SEANC District 65.
The Thomas Professional Building is on Arlington Blvd., just south of Dickinson Avenue, next to Dr. Capps, Bowman and Padgett’s dental office.
