Home for the Holidays

They will donate to more than 6,000 families this weekend alone. They say it will be around 14,000 through the Christmas holiday. But events like this are about so much more than toys. “We’re building the future. When you give a kid a toy, it’s not about the toy. It tells that kid that somebody believes in them,” said Paul Caputo with Toys For Tots.

Toys For Tots is holding a car show from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Sunday at the Rio Rancho Elk’s Club. The price of admission is a toy to donate.
