Toys For Tots: Then & Now

THEN:

Toys For Tots was begun in 1947 in Los Angeles by William Hendricks who, at his wife’s suggestion, gathered a group of local Marine reservists who collected some 5,000 toys for local children.Their efforts were so successful that, in 1948, Toys for Tots was launched as a national campaign.

NOW:

The big Whalen’s Moving & Storage truck is open in front of WDAZ-TV at 2220 South Washington Street in Grand Forks Monday through Friday from 8 AM until 6 PM and on weekends from 9 AM until 5 PM until December 3.  The toys will be distributed in early December by United Way.  Please help us fill the truck with unwrapped Toys For Tots.
