After Santa has come and gone, many parents are left wondering where they will find space for all of their children’s new toys and holiday treasures. The Town Center at Levis Commons is offering a win-win solution to this dilemma with the fifth annual Play It Forward Toy Drive which will rescue and recycle outgrown toys for underprivileged children.
The Town Center will collect gently used, working toys for children in Northwest Ohio who may not have been as fortunate this holiday season. Donations can be dropped off in front of the movie theater at Levis Commons from 12:00 - 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 11. Donated toys should be in working order, be clean and have fresh batteries installed whenever possible.
