It may only be November, but Christmas is already in the air! Here in Tampa Bay, Christmas is a lively and wonderful holiday celebrated on more than just Christmas day with boat parades, light shows, and more. Another way to celebrate is by helping others have the Christmas holiday they deserve.
There are many kids in our community who need a little extra cheer. The Toys for Tots program aims to help you help them. With your help, these kids can have the opportunity to feel extra special by waking up on Christmas morning to a present just for them.
Toys for Tots is the Marine Corps Reserve program designed to collect and distribute Christmas gifts for children of all ages. Each year, many kids benefit from the efforts of the community in helping them to have a great holiday season.
This year, you can join the New b98.7 as they hold their 17th annual Toys for Tots Toy Drive! On December 1st, Chadd and Kristi, the b98.7 morning personalities, will be at Walmart Super Center on North Dale Mabry and 275 from 5am to 8pm. Bring your new, unwrapped toys to help the less fortunate children in our community. Even if you can’t make it to Walmart during the actual event, don’t worry! You can donate your new toys at any of these locations throughout the month of November.
At the Chadd and Kristi Toy Drive, you will also be able to enjoy meeting Star Wars characters, superheroes and even Santa Claus! There will be a free ice cream truck, as well.
Get in the spirit of Christmas by tuning in to the new b98.7 for Christmas music all through November and December until Christmas Day. And of course, in the spirit of giving, help those in need by donating to the kids in our community who need it most.
