Toys for Tots

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA (News4Jax.com) - JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- With so many people struggling in the current economy, many need help with gifts for children this holiday season.

Here's a list of the charities providing free toys for needy children.

In Duval County, the annual Children's Christmas Party of Jacksonville will be Saturday at the Prime Osborn Convention Center. The only requirement is that you bring the child who needs gifts with you. Each child will get three toys, and you do not have to be a resident of Duval County.

Doors open at 9 a.m. and close at 12:30 p.m. or when there are no more toys left.

Organizers stressed that you do not have to get there Friday night to get toys. People often start lining up early in the morning on Saturday, but organizers said they have never run out of toys in their 11 years of giving away gifts.

In Clay County, the JP Hall Christmas Party will be held Saturday, Dec. 19 at the fairgrounds in Green Cove Springs. It will begin at 8 a.m. and gates will close at noon. But everyone in line at that time will be served.

There are some requirements for this party. You must have a picture ID with an address to prove you live in Clay County. And the child must be present to receive gifts.

In Nassau County, there is no city-organized event, but the Salvation Army said the Toys for Tots program is reopening its registration for as many as 300 children. You can register Wednesday until 7 p.m. or Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

You need to have with you all proof of income and bills, birth certificates for all children or proof of custody, and your own picture ID and Social Security cards for all household members, along with copies of those documents.

It is important that if you have registered with any other agency, you do not register with this one. The Marines want to make sure as many children as possible get toys this year.

For another look at what you need to to qualify for the Toys for Tots drive, call 904-375-1635.

If you can't get to any of the toy drives mentioned, you can call the Duval County office for social services, and they may be able to help you. Their number is 904-356-8641.
