Many citizens are in the giving spirit today because it is #GivingTuesday. A day set aside for people to make donations to their favorite non-profits.

One campaign across the nation asking for support is the Toys for Tots. The organization was put in place by the United State Marine Corp. This year, Beverly Rodgers saw the damage Hurricane Florence did to North Carolina and has promoted the Toys for Tots donation drive across Bladen County.

Time is running out to bring your new, unwrapped toy(s) to one of the drop off sites. Rodgers and Carmen Jones want to ensure children will have a brighter Christmas this year with the assistance of Toys for Tots.

To donate a new, unwrapped toy, Toys for Tots drop off locations in Bladen County include:

*BladenOnline.com and Cape Fear Heating & Cooling located at 8849 US Hwy. 701 South, Clarkton.

Dragon Fly Coffee House located at 119 W. Broad Street, Elizabethtown.

*Lu Mil Vineyard located at 438 Suggs-Taylor Road, Elizabethtown.
