The Toys for Tots campaign is underway. Last year, the Keweenaw Detachment #1016 of the Marine Corps League distributed more than 4,000 toys to more than 1,000 children in the Copper Country. You can help make sure every child in our area receives gifts this year by dropping off new, unwrapped toys at the following locations: Walmart, Shopko, Shopko Hometown stores in Calumet and L’Anse, Joey’s Seafood and Grill, Book World, Pizza Hut, the Houghton A-T-and-T store, the Calumet AmericInn, Auto Valu stores in Calumet and Houghton, and the Superior National Bank and Baraga County Federal Credit Union Offices in L’Anse. If you’d like to help with the effort, call Jim Mattson (Houghton and Keweenaw Counties) at 337-5068; Lee DeLeon (Baraga County) at 201-0839; or Bob Botkins (Ontonagon County) at 883-3648.
