Expecting High Christmastime Need

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots is a program sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve with the Kiwanis Club of Port Townsend as the coordinator. The toy distribution is carried out by several other not-for-profit organizations for the benefit of children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.

The national Toys for Tots program has been in operation since 1947. The local program started helping our children in 2011. The demand for toys is expected to be high again this year due to the hardship many families are facing because of the pandemic.

Collection boxes will be available in Port Ludlow for your new and unwrapped children’s gifts beginning November 22 through December 4, at the following locations:

  • The Village Store, 40 Village Way.
  • Caldwell Banker, 9522 Oak Bay Rd.
  • Port Ludlow Brokers, 40 Teal Lake Rd.
  • Port Ludlow Fire & Rescue, 7650 Oak Bay Rd.
  • Plus “Fill the Bus with Toys” December 4, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Safeway parking lot in Port Townsend. New unwrapped toys and cash donations will be accepted.

Donation goes into our local account.

Applications to receive toys will be available at the above locations.

Donation boxes will be picked up on December 4. For more information contact Don Olsen, Toys for Tots coordinator, at 360|||379|||6700.
