Ottawa County Salvation Army Toy Drive makes Christmas bright

Nov 23, 2021 | Around Ottawa County | 0 comments

Put a Christmas present under the Christmas Tree this holiday by donating to the Ottawa County Toy Drive.

The Ottawa County Salvation Army Toy Drive has begun, and anticipates serving a minimum of 1,100 children countywide. The toy collection boxes will be out in local stores, churches, banks and businesses through Saturday, Dec.11.

All toys collected will stay in Ottawa County and serve our local residents.

The Toy Drive is the collaborative effort of The Salvation Army, Toys for Tots “Weapons Company 1/24 and the Ottawa County Holiday Bureau. These agencies partner with other community organizations to assure that each child to the age of 18, in Ottawa County receives a gift under their tree this holiday season.

Most needed are gift items for boys and girls 13-18 years of age.

By partnering, the groups make donated dollars stretch. Last year more than 7,000 toys were distributed around Ottawa County. This holiday season drop off your new, unwrapped toy donations at any of the following locations, or call The Salvation Army:
