33rd annual Toys for Tots drive nears

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. - Coldwell Banker Select of Incline Village and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve are teaming up to sponsor the community's 33rd annual Toys for Tots Campaign.

This year, local businesses are being offered the opportunity to sponsor their own "business based" toy drive.

"This is a great new concept which will allow you to drive business into your doors while helping the community for a most worthy cause," said Toys for Tots Coordinator Cheryl Delehanty of Coldwell Banker.

In 2011, Incline's annual Toys for Tots drive was able to assist more than 240 local families, allowing more than 600 local children the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful Christmas morning.

"We thank you for your continued support which helps us raise funds for the purchase of additional toys for the less fortunate children in our area," Delehanty said.

For donations, please make checks payable to "Toys for Tots" or donate a business gift certificate for upcoming event raffles. To sponsor a toy drive, become a toy drop off site or to volunteer, visit inclinevillage-nv.toysfortots.org.

Toys for Tots' partners in toy distribution include Life Point Church and the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation.
