(UNDATED) – The Christmas holiday season is all about giving.
And one organization is hoping that will be the case.
The Toys For Tots campaign is underway in St. Joseph County and sponsored locally by the U.S. Marine Corps and the St. Joseph County Marine Corps League Detachment 1401 with assistance from the Salvation Army, the Sturgis Armory and the Three Rivers Lions Club.
Toys For Tots boxes are located at two dozen county businesses, schools, libraries and other locations. Please remember those in need this year by adding new, unwrapped gifts for tots through teens before the League picks up boxes on December 16.
In Sturgis, you will find boxes located at Key Bank sites, Wal-Mart, Lake Area Veterinary Clinic, Krogers, Blue Ray Beach and Youth For Christ.
In Mendon, boxes are at the Shell/IGA and Southern Michigan Bank and Trust.
You will find boxes in Three Rivers at Big Lots, The Dollar Store, First Place Learning Center, Rent-A-Center, Three Rivers Public Library, St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Sherwin Williams Paint, American Metal Fab, Armstrong International, The American Legion Post, American Axle and Manufacturing, Hopping Elementary School and Fifth Third Bank.
In Constantine, boxes will be at the Southern Michigan Bank and Trust. And in Centreville, boxes will be located at Glen Oaks Community College, Yoder's Country Market and Southern Michigan Bank and Trust.
