Tulsa's Channel 8 Toy Drive Wraps Up, Join us!

Posted: Updated:

The Tulsa's Channel 8 Toy Drive is coming to a close, but it's not too late for you to help.  The box at KTUL is nearly full. Our employees have given to be sure that some children will have an even merrier Christmas.

We decided to support the Marine Corps Reserves' "Toys for Tots" program. Next we invited local fire stations, like Fire Station 1 in Sand Springs, to serve as toy depots, places where you could give.

At the start of our drive, the Marines had 10-thousand names of children who needed toys.

With just one more day to go, the Marines may be gathering fewer toys, because of the snow and ice.

"Last year it seems like we were getting a lot more requests to get the box emptied," said Staff Sergeant Shawn Irons.

The Marines will continue their pick up from area fire stations, over the next few days, with families beginning to pick-up their gifts for children on Saturday.
