Good Cause: Toys For Tots

By Justin Franz

The holiday season is about to kick into full swing and while most of us are busy thinking about the gifts we have to buy for friends and family, this is also a perfect time to give to those less fortunate. One of the best ways to do that is to give to Toys For Tots. In 2014, the local Toys For Tots effort brought in more than 9,000 new toys for children in the valley. There are more than two-dozen drop off locations around the valley, including Bigfork, Columbia Falls, Kalispell and Whitefish. Please only give toys for children ranging from toddlers to 12-year-olds. If you would like to learn about being a volunteer, call local coordinator Ryan Keeler at (406) 253-2664.
