Outpouring of support helps kids at Marysville Toy Store

The Marysville Community Food Bank Toy Store aims to provide toys and a coat to every local child in need. The annual Toy Store opened Dec. 11 and was helped by many local donors.

The Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce donated $6,610 raised at an auction.

Other major donors included Tulalip Tribes, Fred Meyer, The Grove Church, Soroptimist International of Marysville, Marysville Kiwanis, Rotary Club of Marysville, the Jubie Family, HomeStreet Bank, City of Marysville employees, Local 3219 Marysville Professional Firefighters Union, Coldwell Banker Danforth and Zumiez Foundation.

The Marysville Police Department brought in over 700 new coats, enough so that each child received one.

PepsiCo and the local Providence Intervention Center for Assault and Abuse also donated a sizable number of warm coats, hats and gloves.

Formed in 1985 by several regional service organizations and their volunteers, the Toy Store committee now serves hundreds of children in the 98270, 98271 and 98259 ZIP codes.
