Toys for Tots to Teens raised 2,000 toys for needy kids

2,000 toys beat expectations

The results are in from the annual Toys for Tots to Teens donation drive in Penticton, and it was a smash hit. 

Over 2,000 gifts were gathered from businesses and community members, all of which will go to needy kids aged 0 to 18 this holiday season. 

Last year, the event raised over 1,500, and the previous year just over 1,200. 

Local charitable organizations made requests to the Toys for Tots to Teens team of things they need, and the drive was able to fulfill all those needs and more. They were able to give multiple additional gifts to several organizations.

The team is grateful to all who donated and volunteered their time to make the 2019 event such a success.
