Indiana Ninth District Congressman Todd Young is opening his offices in Jeffersonville and Bloomington as drop off locations for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots campaign.

From Young’s office:

“As someone who served in the Marine Corps, I’m excited to partner with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve in their Toys for Tots Program,” Young said in a news release. “Especially in tough economic times, this is a great way to ensure that children around the district have a memorable Christmas.”

An official Toys for Tots collection box is located in Jeffersonville at 279 Quartermaster Court and in Bloomington at 320 W 8th Street, suite 114. Donations will be accepted during regular business hours from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm on Monday through Friday. Collected toys for Toys for Tots will be distributed to children within the local community.

For more information, please call the Jeffersonville office at (812) 288-3999.

The program is aimed at collecting new, unwrapped toys for less fortunate children in the community where the campaign is conducted.
