Toys for Tots Still Taking Requests & Donations

Men­do­cino County Toys for Tots is still tak­ing requests for chil­dren who need toys before the Dec. 21 dis­tri­b­u­tion. They are also still tak­ing dona­tions. Coor­di­na­tor Tracy Suther­land says dona­tions have been slow this year of both toy and cash dona­tions. She thinks it could be due to the June death of Mar­vin Fuller, who coor­di­nated the Men­do­cino County chap­ter of Toys for Tots for nearly 25 years before she took over this year. She thinks some might not have thought the effort would con­tinue with­out him. Strug­gling fam­i­lies can still sign up their chil­dren through Wednes­day. Any­one inter­ested in mak­ing a cash dona­tion or vol­un­teer­ing to help are encour­aged to call Tracy Sutherland.
