WALTERBORO — Colleton County residents can help needy children at Christmas by dropping off donations for Toys for Tots.

A collection box is at the 14th Circuit Solicitor’s office at the county courthouse at 101 Hampton St.

New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through Dec. 13.

Marine Corps Reserves volunteers will distribute the toys throughout the area. Last year, the solicitor’s office collected almost 500 toys.

Collection boxes are also at the solicitor’s offices in Bluffton at 39 Sheridan Park Circle, Suite 2; Hampton at the County Courthouse at One Courthouse Square; and Ridgeland at 198 Second Ave.
