CLINTON, Iowa (KWQC) - The annual Scott for Tots toy drive hosted its kickoff event today at Ray’s Time Out in Clinton.

The drive collects not only toys, but also coats, hats, and gloves. All of the items will be distributed to children in the Quad City Area through the Holiday Network.

The Network is a community effort and is a part of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Clinton County. Each family receiving gifts will also be given a box of food.

“It’s a great feeling for me to see that no kid is going to wake up on Christmas morning without some toys,” said Scott Stubblefield, Toy Drive Coordinator. “That’s what it’s all about.”

These are the following locations where you can donate, all in Clinton:

  • Billion Auto | Monday - Thursday 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 6 p.m.
  • Clinton Printing | Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
