On Nov. 18 the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots Logan County, conducted its first Teddy Bear Toss at Magazine. The teddy bear toss is an annual event conducted by the Toys for Tots at local schools to raise toys for children in our area.
Teddy bears are brought or purchased at the game, and when the home team scores its first basket of the Sr. Boys game, the crowd throws stuffed animals on the court. The stuffed animals are collected and given out with Christmas gifts to our children in Logan County.
Last year over $93,000.00 of toys were collected and given out in Logan County. Over 1470 children in Logan County were provided Christmas through the United States Marine Corps Logan County.
For more information on how to help donate, upcoming events, or to sign up to receive toys, please contact Joe Gilliam at 479-847-6787.
