ROTARY CLUB OF MANSFIELD TOYS FOR TOTS DRIVE

The Rotary Club of Mansfield will hold the 27th annual Toys for Tots Drive to collect and deliver toys to children in the area. Half of the toys collected are picked up by the local Marines and distributed to needy families in Bristol County. The other half is delivered to West Side Benevolent Circle of Mansfield for distribution to local families and their children.


Jordan/Jackson is again hosting decorated donation boxes in both our East and West offices. All toys should be new and unwrapped. The drive receives many toys for younger children, leaving teenagers with little to receive. Gift cards are great gifts for teens. Monetary donations are always welcome and can be sent to: Mansfield Rotary Club, P.O. Box 251, Mansfield, MA 02048.


Last day for drop-off is December 14.
