There’s still time to donate before deliveries are made Saturday, Dec. 23

    The season of giving is once again upon us, which means the annual Toys for Tots drive is underway in Crookston.

    Toys for Tots is a charity sponsored by the employees of the City of Crookston for children in need in the community. Donations can be sent to city hall at 124 North Broadway, Crookston, MN 56716 or brought to the Water Department, located in the rear of city hall, during business hours.

    Cash donations are actually preferred over actual toys because it allows volunteers to purchase age- and gender-specific gifts for kids. Books, toy and gift wrap donations have also been received.

    Here’s the latest donation tally from this year’s Toys for Tots drive, which has a $5,000 goal:

    • Robin Steinbrink: $25

    • Anonymous: $50

    • Bill & Gloria Watro: $25

    • Gary & Cynthia Garcia: $25

    • Louis Nancy Cournia: $25

    • Connie Smith: $100
