The third annual Toys for Tots drive to help families celebrate the holiday, no matter what their circumstances, will begin collections soon thanks to Walgreens and host Sealy Fire Department (SFD).

“By donating a toy, you can help make this a Christmas to remember and a dream come true for a child in our community,” said  Adam Williamson with SFD.

With the help of the community and the Toys for Tots program, hundreds of toys will be ready for Santa to hand out at the Sealy Fire Station on Saturday, Dec. 14.  Santa Claus will be at the fire station on Highway 90 from 6 to 8 p.m. to deliver gifts and take photos. Every child who comes will get a present.  

Toys are being collected at Walgreens, CVS, Alan’s Barber Shop, Sealy Fire Station and the upcoming Sealy Community Foundation Fantasy of Lights festivities.  All donated toys should be unwrapped and all age ranges are welcomed.  However, in the previous two years there has been a shortage of toys for children 8 and up, so toys for 8, 9, and 10 year olds are greatly appreciated. The toy drive continues through Thursday, Dec. 12.  All donations will go back to families in this community. Any family can come, no child will be turned away.  

“Remember that Christmas is about the joy of giving. Help make this Christmas a memorable one for those in our community,” said Williamson.
