NORTH IOWA- KIMT is teaming up with our Giving Your Best Partners, Diamond Jo Casino and First Citizens Bank, to help the North Iowa Marine Corp. get toy donations for kids in the North Iowa area, and this year they need even more help.
Those we spoke with say they have around 9,000 kids they plan to help this holiday season and the day those toys are being distributed has moved up an entire week from years past.
They are looking for new unwrapped toys, but also have a specific age group they need help with.
“We can’t forget about those in their early teens,” says Diamond Jo Casino General Manager Scott Smith. “We all want to be kids and we all want to open presents during the holidays so we need more donations for those who are 13, 14 and 15.”
If you want to meet some of the KIMT crew there are several dates that we will be helping the marines.
Friday 12/01—East Park by the Cannonball 5-7PM
