Northeast Wisconsin answers Last Call for Toys for Tots
Yes, Wisconsin, there is a Santa Claus.
On Wednesday, hundreds of gift givers answered the LAST CALL for Toys for Tots, bringing donations so that boys and girls, infant to teen, will find a present under their tree this Christmas.
U.S. Marines also answered the call, coming to greet gift givers at the curb at the WBAY Building in downtown Green Bay and the Home Builders Association Fox Cities in Appleton. They were always smiling in spite of sub-zero wind chills as they carried out a mission started by a Marine reservist in 1947.
WBAY-TV is proud to again help the US Marine Corps carry on a decades-long tradition.
It was possibly the biggest response to Toys for Tots in at least 30 years, covering the floor and tables in the WBAY-TV lobby, with some overflow in the auditorium.
THANK YOU, NORTHEAST WISCONSIN!
Thank you to the hundreds of businesses that have been accepting donations for Toys for Tots for the past month.
And THANK YOU to the countless gift givers who are bringing a smile to children's faces on Christmas Day and creating memories.
LAST CALL IS WEDNESDAY
Only two drop-off sites. U.S. Marines will accept your donations curbside at:
WBAY-TV building, 115 S. Jefferson St., in downtown Green Bay, 5 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Home Builders Association Fox Cities, 920 W. Association Dr., in Appleton, 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Each year the holidays are made brighter for children in our communities, with the support of volunteers and the generosity of thousands in Northeast Wisconsin.
