Where in North Andover Can You Donate Toys?

You can brighten a kid's Christmas, right from your own community.

It's the holiday season, and along with the shopping frenzy that accompanies it is the urge to give to those in need.

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.

Locally, there are a few places you can drop off toys.

  • Merrimack Valley Martial Arts Academy, 200 Sutton St., Toys must be dropped off by Dec. 20.
  • Sal's Pizza, 490 Main St. Toys must be dropped off by Dec. 19.

Do you know of more locations in North Andover to drop off toys for underprivileged kids? Leave a comment below and let us know!
