Santa’s elves need a little extra help this year to bring Christmas to hundreds of local children. The Marysville Community Food Bank and Toy Store is in critical need of donations, especially toys for ages 10-17 and infants. Stocking stuffers for all ages are also needed.

You can drop off toys, gift cards, books and coats through Dec. 7 at more than 75 locations across Marysville as well as any city of Marysville government building — including the park office, community center, city hall, police station and all fire stations.

Volunteers are also still needed for the toy store Dec 10-13. Community members interested in volunteering can email fbtoystore@gmail.com. The food bank is looking for volunteers as well, all season long. If you would like to volunteer at the food bank, contact marysvillefoodbank@frontier.com.

The Marysville Community Food Bank and Toy Store is striving to meet its goal this year to provide toys and a coat to every local child in need. Formed in 1985 by several regional service organizations and their dedicated volunteers, the committee now serves more than 1,300 children in the 98270, 98271 and 98259 zip codes. Thank you for your support ensuring that every family in our community has their needs met this holiday season.
