GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Throughout the community, you'll find barrels to drop off new toys for Christmas, but what you won't find is any place to give gently used toys, until now.
The leadership program, Future Farmers of America, at Fruita Monument High School, has enlisted the help of four other schools with a new effort. Elementary schools, Broadway, Chipeta and Shelledy, along with Fruita 8-9, to collect gently used toys which they will clean and distribute for Christmas presents.
"So far we think we about 500 toys collected and that's not even half of what were expecting to come in," says Megan McKee, a Fruita Monument High School student.
These toys will be distributed through Migrant Services and Nurse Family Partnership. The Twice Loved Toy Drive runs until Dec. 17.
