Local organization collecting toys for children

The city of Victoria has a poverty rate of 17.2%, and for every 6.8 people, there is one living in poverty. A charitable organization in the Crossroads area wants to make sure every child has a toy on Christmas morning.

The Old Landmark Committee is collecting toys to distribute to low-income and economically challenged areas as part of their Toy Give Away. They hope to make it a bigger and more impactful year.

They are requesting a donation for any amount to spend on new toys or an assortment of new toys. They also welcome used toys in good condition. They can pickup the donation at any location or you can drop it off at their address: 1908 Navidad Street in Victoria.

The deadline for the donations is December 9 th , 2019.
