USPS Toys for Tots Pickup is Dec. 7

Toys are still needed for the Toys for Tots annual toy drive. Residents will not receive a postcard in their mailbox this year, but all donations can still be dropped off or left in mailbox. Pickup will be on December 7, 2013.

Fort Myers, FL, November 27, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The Salvation Army of Lee, Hendry and Glades Counties announced the USPS Toys for Tots drive is still occurring this year. Residents of Lee County are accustomed to getting a postcard reminder of the USPS and Toys for Tots partnership, but this year, that card will not be distributed to local residents in their mailboxes. However, the toy drive is taking place on Saturday, December 7th.

Lee County residents wanting to help should place a new, unwrapped toy by their mailbox to be picked up by their local mail carrier on Saturday. The local Toys for Tots representatives will pick up the toys from the USPS, and those toys will be distributed to children in this community through The Salvation Army's Christmas Cheer program.

Residents in surrounding counties can contact Toys for Tots at ToysforTots.org or contact their local Salvation Army office.
