Holiday Help: Toys for Tots

Today is Black Friday. Are you out shopping? While you’re grabbing up some good deals, why not pick up a toy for a child in need?

This holiday season, I’m blogging one daily opportunity to help. For a complete list, visit Rappahannock United Way’s annual holiday opportunities guide.

Today’s opportunity is Toys for Tots, the Marine Corps’ annual holiday drive. These holiday gifts go to boys and girls from needy families.

Drop off a toy at one of several Toys for Tots locations throughout the area:
