Christmas is nearly here and many local families need help providing presents to their children.
To help fill this need, the Associated Students of Western Nevada at Western Nevada College is leading a Toys for Tots collection drive through Friday, Dec. 20.
Five collection bins are located throughout the Carson City campus, including the Dini Student Center, Bristlecone Building (by the Information Desk), Reynolds Center for Technology and Aspen Café.
New toys in their original packaging are needed for all age groups. Toys will be distributed to children in the Carson City area.
If a family needs toys for Christmas, they can call the Toys for Tots hotline at 775-799-0918 (English) and 775-799-0877 (Spanish) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
For more information, phone Student Life Coordinator Heather Rikalo at 775-445-4238.
