The Greater Joliet Area YMCA has been proud to once again serve as a Toys for Tots collection and distribution site in 2020. As the largest distribution organization in the area, the Y sorts through several thousand toys each holiday season. This week, volunteers came together at the Smith Family YMCA to prepare gifts that will provide a memorable Christmas for over 1,000 children in need in our community.
From action figures and dolls, to Legos and board games, these generously donated toys were collected in partnership with the United States Marine Corps Reserve. The Y would also like to give special thanks to Exxon Mobil, which donated over 100 presents in addition to providing support with volunteer efforts, as well as volunteers from Walmart for their invaluable service.
