Hampden County

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Thousands of children in need in western Massachusetts are counting on Toys for Tots to provide them with Christmas gifts their families just can’t afford to buy.

Beginning Monday morning and right through December 11th, toy donors will be welcomed into the 22News lobby, as bringing gifts that children in western Massachusetts will treasure. By the time the U.S. Marines pick up this treasure chest of Christmas gifts to distribute to these deserving children, the 22News lobby resembles a crowded wonderland of gift giving.

Giving the gift is also a source of joy for the donor, as these good people have expressed during the many years 22News has been affiliated with the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program
