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 42 of its 65 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.
