The Reno County District Attorney’s Office is holding their 22nd Annual Toys for Tots Drive, collecting new, unwrapped toys that will be given to children for their Christmas holiday.
The collection period starts today, Monday, December 5th and ends Friday, December 9th, 2022, at noon.
Reno County District Attorney Tom Stanton said that there will be many Reno County office locations where people can drop off their donations. Especially needed this year are toys for older teens.
The Hutchinson Police Department and Reno County Sheriff Department are continuing their annual friendly competition to see which group can collect the most toys. The Reno County Sheriff Department collected the most toy donations and received the trophy last year.
“My office deals with the pain and suffering in our community throughout the year. The Toys for Tots Drive allows my staff some relief from the stress of our everyday functions, gives us a chance to help children in the community in a very positive manner, and helps us get into the spirit of giving for the Christmas season,” said Stanton.
Sandy Reger of the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Drive collects and distributes the toys. All the toys given through the DA’s Office stay within the Reno County community.
