Are you buying a new winter jacket? Did your kids get duplicate toys this year? Did Santa bring you a new cell phone?
If you have items you’d like to toss but aren’t sure what to do with them, a number of collections are taking place in the area.
One collection seeking donations for kids is the Tolland Fire Department. Unwrapped toys are being sought for children affected by Hurricane Sandy. You can drop them off at the Fire Training Center and the Crystal Lake Road fire station.
Cell phones piling up because you have the newest and best that technology has to offer? Drop off used cells at the Tolland Resident Trooper Office.
Is your organization collecting donations this holiday season? Let us know. Leave a note in comments or e-mail Local Editor Erin Quinlan at Erin.Quinlan@patch.com.
