Community wide agencies, organizations, and individuals are working to make the holidays brighter this year through the Yankton Toys for Kids program.
Donations of new, unwrapped children’s toys, are being accepted and can be dropped off now through December 16th at Yankton Rexall, Hedahl’s Auto Value, Bomgaars, Maurices, Dunham’s Sports, Walmart, or Menards.
Community members and businesses may also “adopt a family” through the Yankton Toys for Kids Adoption Program, which enables businesses, community members or organizations to provide clothing, food, and gifts to local families. Volunteer “adopters” are paired with a local family in need and provided with ages, clothing sizes, and special requests.
Don’t have time to shop for a toy? Let the United Way do the shopping for you! Caring neighbors are helping Santa Claus make the holiday special for the children in the Yankton area. Cash donations are accepted to fill in where needs are not met and ensure that every referred child receives a toy.
For more information on the Toys for Kids Program, please call Pat Robinson at (605) 661-6500 or the United Way of Greater Yankton office at (605) 665-6766.
