WHS again participating in Toys for Tots

Staff Report

Wabash High School (WHS) announced that it will once again be a collection drop off site for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, according to a press release.

The mission of this program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community and surrounding areas in which the campaign is conducted.

“This year Toys for Tots will be working in conjunction with the Wabash County Christmas Spirit,” stated Jeffery R. Galley, WHS assistant principal. “By participating in this program it is our goal to help deliver to the program’s recipients a message of hope and to assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic young citizens. It is also our hope to help unite members of our community in a common cause that will contribute to the betterment of our future.”

Anyone wishing to donate items can drop off new, unwrapped toys in the WHS front office.

“Please keep in mind that toys for infants and younger children as well as older teenage children are often in high demand,” stated Galley. “Please consider these types of toys as you make your toy selections. No used toys will be accepted. Gift cards will be accepted however they will be used to purchase new toys.”

Monetary donations can be made at the official Toys for Tots website at www.toysfortots.org.

For more information, please contact the WHS front office at 260-563-4131.
