Toys for Tots ready for donations throughout Baldwin County

The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is hosting its annual toy drive and has announced drop-off points in central and south Baldwin County.

That same year, the Jesse Andrews Jr. Marine Corps League Detachment from Daphne collected toys in north Baldwin County and along the Eastern Shore for a Toys for Tots campaign there. The unit collected 10,862 toys and served 2,425 children.

For more information about the two campaigns visit visit in south Baldwin County and in north Baldwin County or along the Eastern Shore.
