• Donate to Toys for Tots: This holiday season, the Fourteenth Circuit Solicitor’s Office will serve as a drop-off location for Toys for Tots. The toys will be distributed to needy families throughout the area by volunteers from the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves. People may drop off new, unwrapped toys at four Solicitor’s Office locations throughout the Lowcountry from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays through December 13. They are:
• Bluffton: 39 Sheridan Park Circle, Suite 2
• Hampton: The Hampton County Courthouse, One Courthouse Square
• Ridgeland: 198 Second Avenue
• Walterboro: The Colleton County Courthouse, 101 Hampton Street.
Last year, people graciously donated approximately 500 toys at the drop-off bins, with Colleton County collecting the most of any of our offices. For more information, please contact Linda Delahunty at 843-255-5893.
