"Hand it to a Hero" toy drive happening Saturday in Canyon


The Texas Department of Public Safety asks for the community's help in making sure children in the Texas Panhandle have a merry Christmas.

The Toys for Tots "Hand it to a Hero" Toy drive is happening Saturday, December 9th, from 5-7 p.m at the First United Bank Center on the West Texas A&M University Campus in Canyon.

They are accepting new, unwrapped toys to give to those children who are less fortunate in the Panhandle.

They ask folks to bring an unwrapped toy and "hand it to a hero."

The first 500 participants receive a BUFF ticket to Saturday's game as WTAMU takes on Lubbock Christian University.

Participants can meet with officials from Texas DPS, the Canyon Police Department, Canyon Fire Department and representatives from all four branches of the military.

There will also be an opportunity to take a picture with Santa.

The event is an extension of the Toys for Tots Texas Tan Santa DPS program.
