100.7 WHUD is proud to support this year’s Marine Corps Reserves Toys For Tots program.
We have the highest admiration and appreciation for the work their team members do … locally… in our communities and we’ve seen the incredible positive impact of the program.
But, this year, there are some big problems and challenges. First, unemployment rates are incredibly high this year and that means the number of families in need of help is going to be higher than they’ve ever experienced.
And second, 100.7 WHUD and the Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange and Dutchess County teams cannot bring the Toys For Tots program to you by staging events in your neighborhood where you can donate toys or cash.
This year Westchester County Toys for Tots is on target to assist 24,000+ children, however we have a 60% drop in collection sites. On our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/t4twestchester) you can see the latest updates.
Become a Drop Site: If you collect in your office/school or company we will need you to sign up https://westchester-county-ny.toysfortots.org/local-coordinator-sites/lco-sites/local-contact-us.aspx Many companies/schools, etc. are on remote so we came up with some virtual options that will still help the campaign: Visit our Amazon Wish List at https://amzn.to/36IFzl9, items purchased from the list are shipped to Toys for Tots Westchester. These items can be purchased to December 19th. Learning Express Toys and Gifts Wish List : https://learningexpress.com/z10583/giftr/registry/view/id/1236
