The United States Marine Corps sponsors the “Toys for Tots” program every year leading up to Christmas. The goal is to make sure that those in need can provide a Christmas toy to every child. Retired Master Sergeant Jim Craig has organized the campaign for the Marine Corps here in Sheridan for several years.
Not only are donations down, but in tough economic times more people ask for help. Toys for Tots is trying to help needy families right here in our community.
With Christmas just days away, the toy distribution will take place this weekend starting at 9 Saturday morning at 151 West Brundage St. Last minute shoppers who want to donate to the program only have a day or two to drop off the new, unwrapped toys at one of several locations throughout Sheridan.
