A Hunt County Halloween Mission
A five-year-old boy is going above and beyond in his community. The local Toys for Tots Coordinator for Hunt County, TX, shared this heartwarming story and pictures with us, and we can’t help but smile. Thank you for making a difference in your community!
‘We had a mother in Hunt County reach out to us advising us that her five-year-old son, Alex, would like to donate all of his toys to Toys for Tots. Alex asked for new toys for Christmas, and he wanted to donate his other toys to children who did not have toys because he knew he was getting new toys this Christmas. I explained to the mom that, unfortunately, we could not take used toys. So, the mom explained this to Alex, which made him want to help even more.
Alex came up with a new idea, and this idea involved the upcoming Halloween. The family’s house is all decorated for Halloween, and each trick-or-treater that brings a new, unwrapped toy to his house will receive a full-size candy bar!
Alex’s idea doesn’t stop there—he would like to keep the collection box at their house for anyone in their neighborhood to drop new, unwrapped toys in before Christmas. So, we took one of our boxes and a banner to his house so he could officially be a toy drop site and collect toys for the less fortunate children in his area!'
