Lots of kids in Girl and Boy land across the Copper Country could be forgiven if they thought they had been transported to Toyland this past weekend. The Marine Corps League – Keweenaw Detachment made its annual gift distribution tied to the Toys for Tots program. Jim Mattson says this year was another great success. Final numbers aren’t in, but he is able to give a ballpark estimate.
That total only applies to Houghton County. If you missed out on donating, you can still do so but any gifts received will go towards next year’s effort. Mattson says some gifts always wind up being left over, by design.
Other area toy drives have also made distributions for the Christmas season.
