Orange County Radio WTBQ’s fifth annual Toys for Military Tots Drive has begun and everyone is invited to help Santa deliver the new, unwrapped toys for children infants to 12 years old whose parents served or are serving in the Military..

WTBQ Radio (AM 1110/FM 93.5) has once again teamed up with Orange County Executive, Steve Neuhaus, who sparked this drive, Orange County Sheriff, Carl DuBois, Pat Rooney, president of the Nam Knights, Amanda Dana, director of OC Tourism, Orange Bank & Trust, Leo Kaytes of Leo Kaytes Ford, Kevin Brand of The Computer Guy, Bob Lesko of Wayne Subaru, Sue Dean of Mckesson and many more.

Four years ago Station owner Frank Truatt and Station Manager Taylor Sterling conceived the idea after speaking with Neuhaus about the needs of the children of our military both active and those of disabled veterans.

“All the toys will be delivered locally in Orange County,” said Sterling. “Nothing is going to stop me from doing the toy drive. These kiddos need it more than ever during this pandemic.”

Shoppers are asked to buy one gift when at the store and make just one child feel the magic of the holiday season.

Extra wrapping paper and ribbons would also be appreciated.

The last day for drop off is Friday, Dec. 18.
