22News Toys for Tots toy collection starts it's final week

"It was 21 people originally last year and this year I think we're a little over 150 and still growing".

The Mike's Carwash in Evansville raised more than $1,700 for the local Toys for Tots campaign.

"I think past year was when we really noticed that there was a need for toys for kids", said Crissy Davies.

Collection boxes are scheduled to be picked up on Friday December 15th, so please get your donations in by then.

It's all part of the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots and our KIRO 7 Cares Toy Drive.

The 22News lobby is filling up, but the need is great.

And thanks to the generous donations from all of the small business owners who joined the club they now have a mission to help more than just the kids.

8, 2017, 59 News will be teaming up with Toys For Tots.There will be two drive through drop off locations set up. "It feels great to know that we make a difference every year during the holiday for a family with children that may have not been able to provide those extras at Christmas time". Fortunately, the task at hand is a lot easier than fighting a war - it is giving back through Toys for Tots. Just drop off any new, unwrapped toys for kids ages 0-14, and in exchange, the restaurant will give you $30 worth of coupons.
