Children in need in Madison Parish won’t be left out in the cold this holiday season, as the Toys for Tots organization prepares to host its annual drive.
According to Tracy Parker, CEO of New Dimensions Youth EduTainment and local TFT Coordinator, the annual drive, which is part of a charitable organization run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves, will hold this year’s local event over several days, partnering with local KFCs.
Serving Madison, Franklin and Richland parishes, this year’s drive will allow new, unwrapped toys to be dropped off at KFC locations in Tallulah, Winnsboro and Rayville Friday and Saturday, as well as Sat. and Sun., Dec. 5 and 6.
Parker said those participating will receive a free $5 Fill-Up meal from KFC for any toy valued at $5 or more. This year’s event is also sponsored by Tracy’s Love Settings & Kustom Krea’s.
