Community Partners for Children Seeking Toy Donations

Toy drive continues through Dec. 14.

Community Partners for Children is currently holding its annual holiday toy drive to benefit in-need children in the Alexandria area and is reaching out to the community for help.

Donation boxes where residents can donate new, unwrapped toys have been placed at businesses and government offices across Alexandria. On Dec. 14, volunteers will pick up the donated toys. The toys will be distributed on Dec. 15 after being sorted by age group.

“When we’re wrapped up in holiday planning, it’s easy to forget what really matters,” Pat Miller, president of the local non-profit Community Partners for Children, said in a release. “If we remember the families in our community who are falling behind, and we find a way to help, it makes the season mean a great deal more.”
