Toys For Tots?

Posted by on Dec. 3, 2011 at 4:37 PM

 I am so excited! I just got the call that we've been approved for getting Toys For Tots for our boys. But we HAVE to pick up the packages tomorrow. So I was wondering if any of you have gotten Toys For TOts before  -- if I bring the boys will they see the gifts? I know they are not wrapped, but do they come in bags or something? I'm just not sure if I can get a sitter so last minute but don't want to ruin the only presents they might be getting from 'us' this year....

 

Thanks,

Shannon

I would imagine they bring them in bags. How many toys are you getting? We give every year to TFT! Glad your boys are getting something from Santa!!

Quoting getoesuepastah:

 Yeah - they didn't say anything about picking stuff out - they said our packages were ready -so I assumed it was in some kinda bag or something....but wasn't positive.

I thought it was supposed to be new, packaged, unused toys, not used stuff? I was a little surprised to hear from them but was shocked at the short notice. I applied several weeks ago and hadn't heard a word - then they called at 4:30 and said I had to pic it up today or tomorrow between 1 and 6. Eek!

Thanks everyone!
