The city of Rye has started collecting Toys for Tots in conjunction with a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserves who will distribute everything collected to needy children in Westchester during the holidays. Rye is hoping to double last year’s collection of $2,200 in toys! Toys should be new, not gift wrapped and appropriate for ages 0-18 years. Go to police headquarters at 21 McCullough Place or city hall at 1051 Boston Post Road and look for the short chimney like boxes. Toys will be collected until Dec. 18. Monetary donations can be made on the Web site, www.toysfortots.org, at any time. Let’s give a poor kid a smile this season!
