Toys for Tots kicks off around county

Through Dec. 15, customers and community members can drop off donations for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots campaign at Rabobank locations around the county.

Ten locations will accept new, unwrapped toys, which will be distributed by Toys for Tots volunteers.

What toys do kids prefer?

“Generally, the toys I’ve seen are for younger kids — up to about 12,” said Gregory Jones, communications director with Rabobank, adding that dolls, action figures, and electronic games are popular. “Last year, the range of toys was huge, so it’s hard to narrow it down. The key is for the toy to be new and in its original packaging.”
