National City Bank is ready for Toys for Tots. The bank, on the corner of Third Street and Broadway, started collecting toys on Tuesday, and now anyone who gives a toy can get a picture taken with a Marine in uniform. The picture will be taken with a digital camera, and it will be available for pick-up later the same day.
The bin for toys will be available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. However, a Marine will be present for pictures from 9 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and 9 to 11 a.m. and 3 to 5 p.m. on Thursdays.
New toys in boxes or with tags are preferred, and can be donated until one week after Christmas.
“We’re trying to get more in for the kids. And everything stays here in the community,” said Linda Franklin of National City Bank.
Franklin also said that with all the losses that people have suffered this year, “the kids are the ones who do without.”
