Renaissance Toy Drive
Updated: Thursday, December 12 2013, 07:26 AM EST
For the fourth year in a row the Renaissance Hotel in Asheville is turning into a Toyland to help local children have a Merry Christmas.
Today is the Annual Renaissance Hotel Toys for Tots Toy Drive. You can walk up or drive up and drop off any unwrapped toy. This morning, News 13's Victoria Dunkle also found out you can donate money and Toys for Tots will buy the toys for you. This year about 10,000 children in our region need help through this program.
You can also help by enjoying a meal at The Ryder's Bistro restaurant at the Renaissance. It will donate portions of today's sales to Toys for Tots.
And tonight is the special LaZoom Bus Tours' Toys for Tots rides. You can get your tickets for the rides at 6 or 7. The ride includes Holiday Music from local band Sweet Claudette.
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserves has been collecting toys for children in need since 1947. And all of the donations you make here, stay here to help local children.
