Coordinator Toys for Tots Drive, Hiawatha Valley Marines
The Winona Area Hiawatha Valley Marines begins the 2013 Winona Area Toys for Tots Drive. This Marine and Navy Corpsmen veterans effort is totally focused on providing needy kids in the Winona area with a gift they can play with in their free time.
In 2012 the Hiawatha Valley Marines effort resulted in 360 families and 1,060 kids receiving assistance. We had over 60 barrels out and received cash contributions from over 70 donors (individuals, businesses and organizations).
We encourage citizens in the Winona area to participate in our 2013 drive by sending donations to the Winona Community Foundation, 51 East Fourth Street, Winona, Minn., 55987. The Foundation has agreed to handle all of the Hiawatha Valley Marines financial matters.
