Toyota of Bastrop is once again hosting its annual toy drive through December 17 to spread Christmas joy to children in need.

Collaborating with the Bastrop Fire Department this year, Toyota of Bastrop is encouraging locals to donate toys and stuff a truck for children in need. Once the truck is full the toys will be distributed to locals in need so that as many children as possible will have something to smile about on Christmas morning. Toyota hopes this will have a positive impact on the community.

“Help us make a difference this year for the children,” reads a flyer for the event.

Donations have already come in: dolls, blocks, action figures, stuffed animals, and other goodies. Toyota asks that the toys be new and in the packaging. Stuffed animals should be new as well. Toyota encourages anyone interested to stop by and donate.

“Help us make the children feel special by stopping by our show room,” They asked on Facebook.

Toys can be donated during regular business hours from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m and should be placed in the truck on the showroom floor.
