The Salvation Army Toy Town is once again rolling through the Quincy and Hannibal area this holiday season.
Tuesday, KHQA, Refreshment Services Pepsi, and The Salvation Army celebrated the campaign with a kick-off celebration.
In an effort to help give some Christmas joy to less fortunate families, the Quincy Salvation Army has placed drop-off boxes around town for the public to place their toy donations. KHQA is glad to both sponsor and be a drop-off location this year.
Quincy’s Salvation Army Major Dan Jennings encourages you to help fill our Toy Town trailer which was donated to the cause by Gully Transportation. You can bring your donations to KHQA’s main lobby during regular business hours, at 301 S. 36th Street.
New and clean, gently-used toys may also be dropped off at The Kroc Center in Quincy.
Toy Town has become one of the larger Christmas campaigns in the area since the Tri-States lost the Marine Toys for Tots Program.
Other area toy drop off locations near you:
- Quincy Mall (including near Sears, JC Penney’s and BonWorth)
- Big Lots (Quincy and Hannibal)
- Walgreens (Quincy and Hannibal)
- CVS (Quincy)
- Walmart (Quincy)
- Broadway Vision Center (Quincy)
You may also consider donating to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. It’s not about toys for Christmas, but items many area children need and would otherwise go without.
Angel Trees are located in several areas including The Kroc Center and Walmart in Quincy.
You can take an ornament with a wish list from Angel Trees across the Tri-States. In the past, they’ve made it available for children as old as 12. This year, you can help children as old as 14.
This year, Angel Trees in Quincy and Hannibal will benefit the Toy Town program.
