Holidays and Helping: Toys for Tots

Woodlawn Optical owner Glenn Charles at the Toys for Tots giving station

Each December is the annual Toys for Tots donation drive at Woodlawn Optical, 8032 35th Ave NE.  Toys for Tots is a holiday-season effort to help bring gifts to needy families.  The collection of toys is done by US Marine Corps Reserves members who then provide toys to other charities as needed.

Woodlawn Optical has been in Wedgwood for 44 of its 67 years in business.  With deep roots in the neighorhood, Woodlawn Optical encourages everyone to donate and they will give a discount on eyeglass frames when you bring in an unwrapped, new toy for the Toys for Tots collection barrel.

Come in for a chat and see the variety of styles of eyeglass frames.  Give a gift for Toys for Tots and enjoy the holiday atmosphere at Woodlawn Optical. Contribute by December 18 when the toys will go for distribution to families.
