Yakima’s Toys For Tots Drive Was A Huge Success This Year [PHOTOS]
Yakima's 2016 Toys For Tots drive with the United States Marine Corps was a huge success. It usually is, however we all helped raise even more toys than ever before to supply even more families with toys. This year we got enough to help out families from the Yakama Nation, Wapato, Sunnyside and more over 1,000 families in Yakima!Distribution day was Saturday at the Modern Living Building at the State Fair Park and it was perfect. The lines were long, but the Marines and various volunteers kept the lines going and everyone very happy!
There were so many toys donated this year that each bag, as they were going to the cars, got a few extra toys and some board games! It was spectacular!
Steve Hahn & Terisha from Steve Hahn Volkswagen Kia & Mercedes Benz showed up to help hand out toys!
This was the biggest Toys For Tots distribution that I have attended in my 33 years of helping out with this event in all of the states that I have lived in! It was tremendous!
Thank you to everyone who helped with this year's campaign! Next year will be even bigger -- I can feel it!
