Local Toys for Tots program going strong
This is the first year the Carroll County Senior Center has collected items for Toys for Tots, but it definitely won't be the last. According to Carla Mann, director of the center, the toy collection has been wildly successful.
"We're definitely doing it next year," she said.
Mann said the center has already signed up 300 children to receive toys with donation bins in more than 20 locations in Carroll County, and also is selling toy trains for a dollar to raise more money for Toys for Tots.
Mann said the donated toys will go to help local children.
"I'm going to make sure that toys donated in Carroll County stay in Carroll County," she said.
Families who signed up for the program may pick up gifts for their children from 4 to 6 p.m. Dec. 22 and 23. Mann asked that parents have identification ready to show when they come for the gifts. The Carroll County Senior Activity and Wellness Center is located at 202 W. Madison Ave. in Berryville.
