Toy Donation Drop-Off Locations in Town
There are a few locations this year in North Andover.
In addition to shopping, many people utilize the holiday season as a time for giving.
One big way people give is through Toys for Tots. Launched by U.S. Marines in 1947, Toys for Tots collects new unwrapped toys from October to December and gives them to underprivileged children.
Through the years, this effort has inspired other organizations to do the same.
