Toy and money donations down at Warren Family Mission

The Warren Family Mission is having a problem with their annual toy giveaway

WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) - The Warren Family Mission is having a problem with their annual toy giveaway – not enough donations.

Dominic Mararri, director of public relations for the Warren Family Mission, said monetary and toy donations are down compared to past years.

The toy giveaway is scheduled for Dec. 15. They are hoping to give toys to 400 families and they need your help.

“It’s definitely a need that we have in the community this year as far as the news from GM,” Mararri said. “We did experience a huge drop in our budget, and we are just trying to sustain what we do have and provide gifts for those that do need it.”

Mararri says you can donate toys or send a check or money order to the Warren Family Mission, 155 Tod Ave. N.W., Warren, Ohio 44485. Donations can also be made online.

Unwrapped toys are being collected for newborns through age 18.
