Overstocked Toys for Tots giving away toys in Montgomery County

WASHINGTON – Montgomery County’s Toys for Tots is so overstocked, the organization is offering free toys for families in need for a few hours Monday morning.

From 9 a.m. to noon, Toys for Tots is giving items to Montgomery County residents, says Master Sgt. retired Marine Corp James Shott with Toys for Tots.

“I have a warehouse full of toys ready to be distributed to those families in need,” Shott says.

This year, Toys for Tots received plenty of donations and the organization was able to give to all the agencies that requested toys. Now, their shelves are still full, Shott says.

“We look like we are a smaller version of Toys R Us,” Shott says.

Montgomery County resident should bring photo identification, a bill with a local address and birth certificates showing the number of kids in the family to the Toys for Tots location at 8633 Grovemont Circle in Gaithersburg, Md.
