HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – It's the 9th year of our holiday toy drive!

You can participate by dropping off toys and other gifts at, Southern Bank, Pembroke Mall and Cinema Cafe.

The items will be distributed to local children living in shelters by the non profit group ForKids.

Families as a whole will be supported by this drive so monetary donations are a big help and will be accepted at Southern Bank locations.

In 2018 we served a total of 1,527 children. Of that total, 290 children were Holiday Helper Partner children and 353 were other community partners. There were 10 van loads of toys and one box truck full of toys from One Hour Heating and Cooling. One of the vans even had a bike in it!

Here's where our News 3 team will be out throughout the drive:

  • Wednesday, December 4: Noon - Cinema Cafe Greenbrier and 4-6 p.m. - Southern Bank
  • Thursday, December 5: Pembroke Mall - noon and 4-6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, December 11: Noon - Cinema Cafe Greenbrier and 4-6 p.m. - Pembroke Mall
  • Friday, December 13: Noon - Cinema Cafe Hampton and 4-6 p.m. - Cinema Cafe Edinburgh

You can donate through December 13.
