Toys for tots donation

Westborough — Get in the holiday spirit by donating a toy to a child in need! MassWildlife’s Field Headquarters (FHQ), located at 1 Rabbit Hill Road, Westborough, MA 01581, is now a Toys for Tots drop-off location. MassWildlife FHQ is open Monday through Friday, 8 AM – 4:30 PM, and will be accepting toys for children in need through December 8th. If you love the outdoors, consider passing on the tradition to the next generation with the gift of a fishing pole or pair of binoculars.

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. For the last 70 years, the United States Marine Corps has distributed over 542 million toys to more than 250 million children. This year, MassWildlife joins other partners in Worcester County as a toy drop-off location. Collected toys will be donated to children in need in Worcester County. If you want to help but don’t live nearby, find other Toys for Tots gift drop-off locations.

All gifts should be unwrapped. Toys for Toys will not accept realistic looking weapons or gifts with food. Worcester Toys for Tots is most in need of toys for: infant boys/girls ages 0–2; boys ages 9–11, 12+; and girls ages 6–8, 9–11, 12+. Barbie dolls, matchbox cars, stuffed animals, and toys for children ages 3–5 are least needed.
