Toys for Tots applications being taken

The Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program, with the assistance of Enid Civitan Club, is taking applications for the holiday toy giveaway.

Applications are being taken 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at Res-Care Oklahoma, 112 W. Randolph. Res-Care has formed a partnership with Toys for Tots by providing work space for taking applications and distribution of toys in December.

Enid Civitan Club President-elect Don Jones and other club members helped distribute collection boxes. Boxes have been placed in 83 locations in the Garfield County area. All toys collected will be distributed in Garfield County.

Toys donated must be new and unwrapped for children ages newborn through high school.

Cash donations are 501(c)(3) tax deductible.

None of the toys to be distributed are among the list of toys being recalled by manufacturers.

“Parents can rest assured that we’re doing everything possible to pull toys that have been recalled from our inventory,” said Larry, Wheeler Toys for Tots Foundation coordinator.

He said parents will pick out toys for their children when they come in to shop. A Civitan volunteer will accompany each parent in picking out gifts.

A community-wide toy collection event will be 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday during the Enid Lights up the Plains celebration at the Res-Care/Toys for Tots warehouse. Applications will be taken from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and during the evening.
