BLUEFIELD, W. Va. (WVVA) - Toys for Tots is officially accepting donations and applications for its 2020 efforts.
Things look a little bit different this year because of COVID-19. Toys for Tots volunteers cannot be out in the community. While there are still toy drop-off boxes and donation jars around town, Toys for Tots is heavily relying on mail-in and online donations.
To make a donation, people can mail a check to this address: Toys for Tots, P.O. Box 122 Bluefield, WV 24701. Or people can donate online at email@example.com, and click the "Donate Local" button.
Those who would like to sign up to receive toys should call this number: (304) 800-4501. Infants through children the age of twelve are eligible to receive toys.
Toys will be passed out at Edgemont Baptist Church in Bluefield, West Virginia. The church is located at 2507 Jefferson Road.
To comply with local COVID-19 protocol, families will receive a designated "pick-up" date to come to the church. Those dates will begin mid-November and run through December 17th and 18th. During pick-up, Toys for Tots is asking everyone wear a mask, and come on the day you have been assigned. Toys for Tots said if you come a different day, you may be turned away.
