“We are proud to once again be a part of the Toys for Tots Program to help provide presents to children in need this holiday season,” said Adam Thompson, Director of the World of Little League Museum. “We strongly urge anyone who is willing and able to participate in the program and bring a donation to our Museum as we look to provide a memorable experience for families in need throughout our community.”
Each visitor who brings a new, unwrapped toy with a value of at least $10 to the Museum prior to December 12 will receive one free Museum admission for later use as a thank you for supporting the local Toys for Tots program. The Museum is currently open Thursdays through Mondays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET. Those looking to purchase a toy may also stop at the Little League Main Gift Shop (located on the concourse behind Lamade Stadium), which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Fridays.
Toys collected at the Museum will be given to the American Rescue Workers and the Salvation Army for local distribution in Williamsport, South Williamsport, Loyalsock Township, Cogan Station, Trout Run, and Linden.
In addition to the toys donated at the World of Little League Museum, children in Greater Lycoming County benefit from Toys for Tots donations at area collection centers. In previous years, more than 18,000 toys were distributed throughout the local Williamsport community with more than 2,000 children being supported in those efforts. Since it launched in 1947, Toys for Tots has distributed 627 million toys to support more than 281 million children in more than 800 communities each holiday season.
