Toys For Tots registration ended Saturday, still need more toys
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- More than 250 local families registered for Toys For Tots at the DSHS Building in Kennewick Saturday afternoon, the last day for registration, and a total of 850 families need a gift this year. The organizers are asking for a tax return for proof of income because they are down in donations and people have abused the system in the past. Anyone making more than $30,000 does not qualify. Toys will be handed out to kids 10 and younger at the Benton and Franklin County Fairgrounds December 11 at 11:00am.
The local coordinator for the program, Bill Stott says people have rally stepped up and helped this weekend. "We're about sixty percent for our needed goal this year. We had a good weekend this weekend, we were very surprised and happy about it. But we also were at eight different locations and still need more help," says Stott.
