Area residents can apply for assistance through the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots drive.
Families that are connected with a human service agency should apply for assistance through their service coordinator. For families that do not have a service coordinator, The Resource Center will accept walk-in applications at the following times and locations only:
In Dunkirk, applications will be accepted from 1-3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29, in The Resource Center's facility at 186 Lake Shore Drive West.
In Jamestown, applications will be accepted from 1-4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, and from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Dec. 1, at 210 Cherry Street.
Children from birth to age 17 living at home are eligible to receive toys. All applicants must bring identification for themselves and their children living in their household, as well as proof of household income. Applicants must meet income criteria. All applications will be verified for eligibility requirements.
The Resource Center coordinates the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots drive in Chautauqua County each year, making the holidays brighter for about 2,500 children.
