CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The annual Toys for Tots campaign at 22News is now over, but the joy to kids all over Western Massachusetts is just beginning.
This year’s 22News/U.S. Marines “Toys for Tots” Drive was a huge success because of you, our viewers.
For two weeks, generous people from all over Western Mass. have been dropping off their toys for this year’s Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots drive. Some highlights of this year’s drive include students stuffing their principal’s car with toys as well as local and Massachusetts State Police stuffing their cruisers with toys.
- Students “stuff the principal’s car” with Toys for Tots
- Mass. State Police collect Toys for Tots
- Chicopee Police donate to Toys for Tots
We have a mountain of new toys in our 22News lobby here in Chicopee. In fact, we ran out of room in the lobby. We have hundreds of bicycles lining the halls, and hundreds of toys have already been loaded.
Western Massachusetts families have made this annual drive a way to teach their children about giving. Businesses donate toys, in an annual tradition of giving.
We thank you, and thousands of deserving children thank you for your generosity.
