KRQE to Open Phone Bank to Benefit Toys for Tots Tuesday

Many kids who would otherwise do without this holiday season, will be showing big smiles knowing others are passing along the love.

That’s where our local “Toys for Tots” rises to the Occasion and today KRQE will open a phone bank Tuesday between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.

New Mexico has one of the highest cases of child poverty in the country. Many children will not receive a Christmas gift unless Toys for Tots help to provide it.

Go to Pizza 9 locations, and they will get a coupon checkbook worth $100 value. Other locations listed on the krqe.com/cares page.
