Fourth Annual Toys for Tots 'Drive-By and Drop Off' Event to Be Hosted at the Labor Building

Dec 1, 2023

On Dec. 13, from noon to 3 p.m., the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program will collect toys at 4 W Edenton St., in front of the Labor Building. This is the 25th year that the N.C. Department of Labor and its Toys for Tots partners have co-hosted this annual toy drive. This year's drive will be a 'drive-by and drop-off' event.

"During the holiday season, times can be tough for families and Toys for Tots gives us an opportunity to help our community and to brighten the day of a child's life," Labor Commissioner Josh Dobson said. "This is the season of giving and the Labor Department is proud to take part in a program like Toys for Tots. Last year, the Labor Department and its partners collected 1,478 individual toys and bicycles and received $4,300 in monetary donations."

The Department of Labor's mobile training unit, Labor One, will be parked in front of the Labor Building to store all the toys collected. Anyone driving by or walking by to drop off toys or monetary donations will receive an individually wrapped goodie bag as a "thank you" for donating. You will not even have to get out of your car as Toys for Tots elves will receive donations and share bags of goodies in exchange.

Any new unwrapped toy, including bicycles and tricycles, will be accepted as well as monetary donations made payable to the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation.

So, on Dec. 13, from noon to 3 p.m., in front of the Labor Building, located a 4 W Edenton St., drive by or walk by and drop off a new toy.
