Rep. Parkhurst Partners with Toys for Tots
State Representative Lindsay Parkhurst announced the 79th District office is partnering, for a second year, with the Marine Corps Reserve for the Toys for Tots program.
“Our goal is to help economically challenged children in the 79th District enjoy a Merry Christmas and have Happy Holidays. Please look for a donation box and donate a new, unwrapped toy for a child in need.” Rep. Parkhurst said.
Rep. Parkhurst has a collection box in the 79th District Office, at 370 E. Court Street in Kankakee. The final day to drop off new, unwrapped toys is December 10. Additional drop-off locations may be found on the Kankakee Toys for Tots website at kankakee-il.toysfortots.org.
Online registration to receive toys will be open until December 1. For questions relating to the Toys for Tots program, including registration and distribution, please contact the Kankakee Coordinating Officer, Gail Oliver at 815-277-9229. The 79th District office may be reached at 815-523-7779.
