17 Dec 2019 - Coins for Kids and Toys for Tots

KONY KIDS NIGHT COMING UP!!!  This is our annual shop for toys, package the toys at the checkout lanes, and load the sacks of toys into a trailer.  We need about 20 Marines to assist with these duties at the Washington Walmart from 5:00 p.m. to 9 p.m. on December 17.  The “cash” part of this program for kids is Coins for Kids sponsored by KONY.  They register and qualify the families.  They take the cash and spend it at Walmart, we package it and send it off on trucks and trailers to be taken to the Dixie Center where the purchased presents end up co-mixed with our Toys for Tots items.
