The holidays are upon us, so that means the Marines have been out and about placing their collection barrels and boxes for Toys for Tots at various places in Davis.
The Marine Corps League of Yolo County collects and distributes the donated toys to unfortunate children of Yolo County each year on the Saturday before the Christmas holiday. Last year, the Marines distributed more than 5,000 toys.
Please help us to make a child’s Christmas special this year by purchasing a new toy and placing it, unwrapped, in one of our barrels or boxes. What age? Any age, infant to 12 years old. You can drop off toys at any one of the following locations in Davis:
City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd.; Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.; Nugget Market, 1414 E. Covell Blvd. and 409 Mace Blvd.; CVS/pharmacy, 1550 E. Covell Blvd.; Covell Gardens, 1111 Alvarado Ave.; Get Fit Davis, 2795 Second St.; Center City Automotive, 300 Madson Place; Yolo Federal Credit Union, Fifth and G streets; Davis Police Department, 2600 Fifth St.; Hanlees Toyota, 4202 Chiles Road; The Arbors Apartments, 1280 Olive Drive; Davis Ace Hardware, G Street downtown and Aggie Ace, 606 W. Covell Blvd.; Safeway, 2121 Cowell Blvd.; Davis Swim and Fitness, 303 Ensenada Drive; and Coldwell Banker, 505 Second St.
