2016 Toy Shop

The Salvation Army, the U.S. Marines, WTMJ 620 and Kapco collect and distribute toys to children in the Greater Milwaukee area. This program allows parents to provide new toys for their children at Christmas. Volunteers donate toys, sort toys by age and gender, and set up and stock tables in preparation for distribution. During distribution week volunteers keep tables stocked and assist parents in choosing toys for their children.
