The VFW Toys for Tots will be available again this year for local children. The deadline to apply is December 16, 2013. If a child is on another list such as the Salvation Army or Toy Run, they are not eligible for this program. Information will be verified.
All families must complete a current application. If a child received toys last year from this organization, all that is required is to submit the completed application. If someone wants their child on the list and they have not been qualified for this program in the past, they must also provide proof of income, proof of residence, birth certificates and school district the child attends. A person must meet poverty guidelines in order to get help.
Please submit the application to Shannon Davis via fax at 972-230-3384. The toys are scheduled to be distributed around December 21, 2013 at Mt. Gilead MBC, 106 Harris Street in Italy. For more information contact Shannon Davis at 214-517-2042.
