Toys for Tots &
Gifts for Teens
2017 DISTRIBUTION DATES:
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22
MASON & MANISTEE COUNTIES:
DISTRIBUTION OF TOYS AND GIFTS TO LOW-INCOME FAMILIES JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS SO THAT EVERY CHILD HAS A GIFT UNDER THEIR TREE FOR CHRISTMAS MORNING.
In 2016, the program provided gifts to 916 children from 361 families in Manistee and Mason counties. We’re again partnering with Synergy Broadcasting Group, which owns a number of local radio stations, to help make Christmas merry for hundreds of local families.
New unwrapped toy donations for boys and girls ages 0-18 may be dropped off at the FiveCAP offices in Scottville and Manistee. Cash donations are accepted, and are used to purchase toys and gifts closer to the distribution dates (December 20 & 21), allowing us to ensure there are enough items for each age group.
Decorated barrels have been placed throughout businesses and organizations in Mason and Manistee counties. Santa's elves will pick up the barrels on December 15th to organize the toys for Santa.
Any local businesses that would like to play host to our barrels, or for more information, contact the FiveCAP office in Scottville at (231) 757-3785 or Manistee (231) 723-8327.
YOU CAN ALSO SUPPORT TOYS FOR TOTS/GIFTS FOR TEENS at the Festival of Trees during Sleighbell Weekend (Dec. 1-3) in Manistee!!! Look for our barrels!
FiveCAP TFT/GFT was selected as the charitable program to receive donations and proceeds from the 2:00 p.m. show on Sunday, December 3rd at the Ramsdell Theatre in Manistee.
