Toys for Tots Needs Volunteers

big_toy.jpgIn Friday’s Ledger is a short article about the need for volunteers at Toys for Tots. It seems the local drive needs civilian volunteers to help with phones, package, and pick-up and deliver toys.

I just called the volunteer number, 863-292-8687, but a recording just directs parents in need to apply next week at their school. No additional information for potential volunteers.

I want to help with this program. I still remember a year when my little sister’s only gift was a donated doll. People have no idea how such a simple act can do a lifetime of good.

I’ll try again until someone is in the office.

Update:The number given doesn’t go to the volunteer center. The best bet to go help is to apply directly at the staging center. They’re set up in Publix donated space at 4760 S. Florida Ave. in the Lake Miriam Square shopping center (in the old Hancock Fabric store). I just walked in this morning with my offer to help. They’ll really need people starting Monday the 27th after 9 a.m. See you there.

  3. Loretta,

    Your best bet is to go to the Toys for Tots office in the Lake Miriam Square shopping Center any day after 9 a.m.
