The donation drive will run through Dec. 19. Westy in Stamford and Norwalk are designated drop off locations for toy donations. In addition, Westy will also provide storage for the donations, and assist with final delivery.
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys for less fortunate children in local communities. A shiny new toy can deliver a message of hope to needy children. Since it expanded to a nationwide program in 1948, it has distributed more than 370 million toys to over 173 million children.
“Westy continues to be a true partner of Toys for Tots. Their convenient locations throughout the tri-state area make perfect drop off points for the toys,” said George Ducanic, Campaign Coordinator, Toys for Tots. “Thank you to all the generous contributors that help make Christmas special for the children in need.”
The Westy Self Storage in Norwalk is located at 50 Keeler Ave., and the Westy in Stamford is located at 80 Brownhouse Road. Westy is open for drop off seven days a week. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. Call (203) 961- 8000 or visit www.westy.com for directions.

"We welcome the opportunity to assist our community and help where we can," said Shawn Thompson, Assistant District Director of Westy Self Storage, Norwalk.
