Date/Time
Tuesday, December 3rd 2013 - All Day

Community wide agencies, organizations, and individuals are working to make the holidays brighter this year through the Yankton Toys for Kids program.

Donations of new, unwrapped toys, appropriate for ages 0 to 18, are being collected now through Saturday, December 15th and can be dropped off at Maurices, Aaron’s, Walgreens, and Menards, or at the Toys for Kids Headquarters located at the Yankton Mall behind Best Nails.

Don’t have time to shop for a toy?  Let us do the shopping for you!  Caring neighbors are helping Santa Claus make the holidays special for the children in the Yankton area.  Cash donations are accepted to fill in where needs are not met and ensure that every referred child receives a toy.

For more information on the Toys for Kids Program, please call the United Way & Volunteer Services’ Office at (605)665-6766.
