We’ve been getting requests for information for Toys for Tots. Here’s all we have:
To donate or volunteer: call 292-8687. I’ve had difficulty getting through to the over worked volunteers and the voicemail is full. A better bet is to mail donations to:
Toys for Tots Polk County
PO Box 303
According to a Ledger report, Toys for Tots will also set up donation points in the area.
At the Toys for Tots request page the same phone number is listed, but you can click the coordinator’s name to send an email request.
Here are the instructions from that site:
To Request a toy for your children or the children of another family:
* Search for the campaign site nearest you
* Click the name of the local Toys for Tots Coordinator ( A pre-formatted email message will appear)
* Type your request on the pre-formatted email message (Include your mailing address, phone number and FAX number)
* Click send (the message will go to your local Toys for Tots Coordinator)

I will add comments here as I learn more.
Atomic Tattoo will give a $25 gift certificate to anyone donating to the Toys for Tots. Stop by the shop at 2405 Florida Ave. South with any brand new, unwrapped toy, worth at least $5. Read the rest of the requirements here.
The offer is valid until Dec 24, 2008. The studio is open 11AM to 9PM Sun-Thu and 11AM to 10PM Fri-Sat.
Thanks to tokyobelle for the heads up.
