BAXTER -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation office in Baxter has been designated a drop-off location for the Toys for Kids drive.
The drop-off box will be in the front lobby of the Baxter office, 7694 Industrial Park Road. New, unwrapped toys may be dropped off 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. weekdays through Dec. 15.
In addition to the drop-off location, MnDOT's Hiwayan Club -- an employee-sponsored organization -- recently raised $731 for the Toys for Kids effort.
After the toys are collected, local Marine Corps representatives will distribute the donated toys and money to families in the Brainerd lakes area.
Other drop-off sites are located throughout the Brainerd area. For more information on the Toys for Kids drive, call Jim Shubert at (218) 963-7509.
