Where to Turn Toy Drive for Hurricane Florence victims

Our friends at Where to Turn will be collecting toys for their annual Holiday Toy Store and will also be sending toys to the victims of Hurricane Florence.

​Last year, Where to Turn sent thousands of toys and stocking stuffers to Texas and this year they want to do the same for the Carolinas.

If your school or business would like to start collecting, Where to Turn will arrange pickup. The toys will be sorted at their warehouse and they will fill pods and ship them to trusted sites for distribution.

If you would like to be a part of the drive, please contact Dennis McKeon at Dennis.mckeon@where-to-turn.org, who says, “People were good to us after Sandy, so let’s return the favor.”
