Toython 2013 This Weekend

Meridian, Miss. WTOK's Toython is Friday and Saturday at both Meridian Wal-Mart locations. We will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children served by local charities.

Toython continues till 9 p.m. Friday and runs 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.

The donations will be handled by the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) which will help get them to kids this Christmas.

"We hope that everyone will have the opportunity to give this year," said WTOK general manager Tim Walker. "We're providing toys for five different organizations that help children in need and families in need during the holidays. And this is one way we make sure that Christmas is a joyous time for the children in our community."

The five agencies that will distribute the toys include Cans for Kids, Wesley House, Salvation Army, Hope Village, and Care Lodge.
