You can brighten a child’s holiday by dropping off a new, unwrapped toy at Anne Arundel Community College’s Department of Public Safety, which is a drop-off site for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program.
Drop off the toys or donations from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily through Tuesday, Dec. 21, at the department in the Central Services Building on the Arnold campus. The building is visible from the second AACC entrance on College Parkway from its intersection with Governor Ritchie Highway (state Route 2).
This is the 7th year of the partnership and the college has been the largest collection site in Anne Arundel County.
As the holiday nears, the Marines will distribute the toys to needy children with the aid of local social welfare agencies and churches in Anne Arundel County. The Toys for Tots campaign was created in 1947. For information, call the AACC Department of Public Safety, 410-777-2440.
