Members of the center wrapped gifts and accepted donations for Toys for Happiness throughout Tuesday. Toys for Happiness provides toys for children up to age 15 every Christmas season. The organization has nearly 30 drop-off locations that accept donations in the tri-state area. Toys for Happiness officials plan to continue the trend of the past several years in providing toys to 2,000 to 2,200 local children this year. After this holiday season, the organization will have aided approximately 70,000 kids during its 30 years in service, according to president Chuck Koelker.
