MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — Registration opens today for those families interested in receiving a Christmas gift through Toys for Tots.
Due to the pandemic, registration is only happening online this year.
The mission of the program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute them to children in need in Blue Earth, Waseca, Nicollet and Le Sueur Counties.
Last year, Toys for Tots distributed more than 14,600 toys, supporting nearly 3,100 children in the region. Children must be 14 and younger to qualify.
Registration is open now through Dec. 16. To register, or if you’d like to donate toward the cause, visit mankato-mn.toysfortots.org.
