As the holidays draw nearer, our team is excited to announce that both our New Brighton and Minneapolis stores will be designated Toys for Tots drop-off sites this season!
Toy collection has begun, and it will run through Saturday, December 15. Members of the local community are incited to drop new, unwrapped toys in collection boxes at our stores during regular business hours (Tues - Fri, 10am - 6pm and Sat 10am - 4pm). At Christmas, Toys for Tots Coordinators, with the assistance of local social welfare agencies, church groups, and other local community agencies, distribute the toys to the less fortunate children of the community.
To date, 548 million toys have been distributed and 251 million children have been supported since the program's inception in 1947.
"We are excited to bring the spirit of the holiday season into our stores through this partnership with Toys for Tots," said Robin Henrichsen, Donations Manager for Twin Cities Habitat ReStore outlets. "We're hoping to fill these boxes, and then some!"
