CBS 58 and Steinhafels Partner for Toy Drive

CBS 58 and Steinhafels have partnered again this year to host a toy drive.

You can drop off the toys at any Steinhafels locations through December 18.

Salvation Army is holding a Toy Shop to make sure children have a present on Christmas morning.

The Toy Shop is a cooperative effort between The Salvation Army, the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, Tosa for Tots, Kids 2 Kids Christmas by Kapco and WDJT CBS 58. The Toy Shop utilizes hundreds of volunteers to sort toys and assist parents with their shopping. Over 10,000 children receive toys through this program.

Families that participate in the Toy Shop have a demonstrated need for assistance and are identified and referred to the Toy Shop by community and social service agencies, school social workers and Salvation Army program staff. Clients will be provided with a Registration Referral Letter that contains a specific registration appointment. By scheduling registration appointments we hope to provide clients with efficient service and a decreased waiting time.

New toys can be dropped off at the Toy Shop M-F, 8:00 am-3:00 pm (all year long) or placed in Toys for Tots collection boxes at retail sites

We are in specific need of toys for both boys and girls ages 8-15
