City collecting for Toys for Tots
Venice City Hall, 401 W. Venice Ave., and Venice Municipal Airport, 150 Airport Ave. E., are collection points this year for the Marine Toys for Tots Program.
Members of the community are asked to drop new, unwrapped toys in these collection boxes. Coordinators pick up the toys and store them in central warehouses where the toys are sorted by age and gender. At Christmas, coordinators, with the assistance of local social welfare agencies, church groups, and other local community agencies, distribute the toys to needy children in the community.
Citizens are asked to drop off toys between 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday, by the 2nd week of December.
