Toython 2017 is Friday!

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - WTOK is gearing up for our important, annual Christmas toy drive! We call it "Toython" and it's our way of helping make sure local children in need have a special Christmas!

Our Toython will be Friday, Dec. 1. We'll have a truck at Meridian's two main Walmart locations from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. (The Walmart Neighborhood Market is not a drop-off location).

You might even see a few of your favorite Newscenter 11 personalities at the drop-off locations!

You may share with children in the community by donating new, unwrapped toys.

The United Way will distribute the toys collected to five local agencies that serve people who need help at Christmas.

We hope you'll participate in this important and worthwhile event!
