LIVE UNITED Toy Drive under way

United Way of Story County (UWSC) is partnering with the United States Marine Corps for the tenth year to bring Toys for Tots to Story County through the LIVE UNITED Toy Drive. UWSC will be providing toys and gifts to partner agencies to distribute to children ages newborn through 18 this holiday season. Last year, more than 550 local children received gifts. To donate toys and gifts to the LIVE UNITED Toy Drive this year, drop off new, unwrapped gifts at one of the following locations in Story City: American Packaging, M.H. Eby, Inc., or Reliance State Bank by Sunday, December 14. Other drop-off locations outside of Story City can be found online at www.uwstory.org.

Danfoss in Ames helped kick off this year’s collection effort off with a special engineering-related toy drive to celebrate a new internal branding initiative. This is the first year Danfoss has been involved in the toy drive, and employees were able to collect more than two large boxes full.
