Many drop-off locations are available to those planning to participate in Toys for Tots this year.
The Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue (PWCDFR) are accepting donations for the Foundation.
Organized by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, the 72-year-old program collects gifts to children in need, according to a release from the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue (PWCDFR).
It was founded by Major William L. Hendricks after his wife couldn’t find an organization that would help her donate a doll to someone less fortunate.
Community members may bring new, unwrapped toys to Prince William County fire stations or Manassas fire stations by December 14.
Gifts can also be dropped off at the Prince William County Public Safety Training Center, 13101 Public Safety Drive in Nokesville, or the lobby of the McCoart Administration Building, 1 County Complex Court in Woodbridge.
HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire is collecting Toys for Tots donations, as well.
The auto shop, which is located at 15698 Jefferson Davis Highway in Woodbridge, will accept them from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Donors may also drop them off at HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
Used toys and clothing aren’t being accepted. PWCDFR encourages community members to donate those items to area churches and shelters.
