Imagine Kenosha, a non-for-profit organization located in Bristol whose mission is to help meet unmet needs of youth in Kenosha County, is partnering with the Marine Corps Toys for Tots organization this holiday season to help bring joy to children of families in need this Christmas.

Donations of new, unwrapped toys can be donated at Imagine Kenosha (located directly across the street from the Bristol Village Hall at 19806 83rd St.) Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. from now until Dec. 20. Toys and games for all ages are welcome, however, there is an extreme deficiency of items suitable for children ages 10 to 14. Older children tend to be forgotten during the Toys for Tots drive, so this year we are looking to fill the void in the program and bring holiday to each child in need in the Bristol community.

Imagine Kenosha will also serve as a distribution center for the families to pick up the gifts. Holiday music and refreshments will be provided, and representatives from the Marine Corps, as well as Santa Claus, will be on hand for the festivities.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program is to collect new toys each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to children of families in need in the community which the campaign is conducted. While the Marines coordinate and manage the program, its success depends on the support of the local community members and businesses. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through new toys at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate children that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
