WTBQ’s 5th Annual Toys for Military Tots Drive has begun and everyone can help Santa deliver the new, unwrapped toys for children up to 12 years old to those whose parents served or are serving in the military.
WTBQ Radio has once again teamed up with Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus (who sparked this drive), Orange County Sheriff Carl DuBois, President of the Nam Knights Pat Rooney, Director of Orange County Tourism Amanda Dana, Leo Kaytes of Leo Kaytes Ford, Kevin Brand of The Computer Guy, Bob Lesko of Wayne Subaru, Sue Dean of Mckesson, and many more.
All the toys will be delivered by Santa locally in Orange County. These children deserve a smile on Christmas day as they maneuver through this pandemic. The recipients are children of Orange County Disabled American Veterans, represented by Pete and Laura Rollins, and children of Active and Reserves stationed at Stewart Air Force Base, represented by MSgt, Sara Pastorello.
Participants are asked to donated new, unwrapped toys for ages – infant to 12 years old. Wrapping paper and ribbon will be appreciated. The drop off sites in Warwick are: WTBQ Radio, 179 Sanfordville Rd., and Leo Kaytes Ford, 145 Rt. 94S. The last day to drop off toys is Fri.., Dec. 18.
