Clearfield, PA – Help make sure that every kid has a pile of gifts under the tree this year!
Toys for Tots donation boxes can be found all over our area, including right at the exits of many stores, making it easy to pick up an extra gift this year for a child who needs some extra Christmas cheer.
Last year, they provided 15,443 gifts total for 2,791 kids. For the Clearfield County area Toys for Tots, all gifts stay in our local area of Clearfield County and Falls Creek.
The deadline to drop off a new, unwrapped gift in a donation box this year is Saturday, Dec. 12.
You can also apply for your family to receive some extra holiday cheer from Toys for Tots until Dec. 1.
You can also make a monetary donation through their website, clearfield-pa.toysfortots.org.
They’re especially in need of gifts for both boys and girls ages 7-13. (Some ideas: footballs, soccer balls, earbuds, drones, cosmetics or beauty supplies, board games, Lego kits, art supplies, or science experiment kits.)
Each bag gets one big gift, two small ones, a craft, a game, a stuffed animal, a coloring book, a reading book, candy, and a stocking stuffer.
