Sheriff's deputies donate to Toys for Tots

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Deputies with the Brown County Sheriff's Office stopped by WBAY-TV in downtown Green Bay to donate to the Toys for Tots campaign Tuesday.

Deputies teamed up with Walmart to give back and help kids have a merry Christmas.

"It's one of those times where we in law enforcement see people down and out at their worst at times," Sgt. Trevor Bilgo said.

They hope this inspires others to give back.

"It's an easy way to do it. It's such a simple thing. Someone else takes the effort of getting the campaign together, and all you have to do is show up and drop a few toys off."

"It can be a single box of crayons. We know there are families out here in Northeast Wisconsin that don't have a tree, or have a tree and very little to put under it. A simple box of crayons, a coloring book, a little thing can make the biggest difference," Bilgo continued.

Toys for Tots was created by the U.S. Marine Corps. WBAY is a proud sponsor of the local campaign.

Hundreds of businesses around Northeast Wisconsin took part this season, offering more than 500 places to drop off new, unused toys for kids of any age.

The last official day to donate is Wednesday, Dec. 13. We call it "Last Call!" U.S. Marines will be on-hand to offer curbside pickup at the WBAY building at 115 S. Jefferson St. and Home Builders Association of the Fox Cities at 920 Association Drive in Appleton from 5 a.m. until 8 p.m., no matter the weather.
