'Tis the time of year when the jingle of shopping fills the air, and at Menards in Williston, it's no different. The shift in people's spirits toward Christmas cheer isn't just great for business; it goes much further than that.

This is where YOU play a vital role.

In the festive spirit of Christmas, the Williston Menards home improvement store proudly serves as a drop-off point for their annual toy drive.

For several years, they've embraced this wonderful opportunity, and are eager to bring joy to the faces of less privileged children in the community yet again this year.

Your part is simple. Swing by the Menards toy section, pick up a toy or maybe even two, place them in your shopping cart, proceed to the register, pay for them, and then comes the real magic. Dropping off these donations in the toy bin is how you sprinkle a bit of Christmas spirit around.

You'll spot a designated drop box near the store's exit door, welcoming new, unwrapped toys from now until the end of November. These gifts will be distributed by a local non-profit organization within our community.

The need for toys is substantial. Without Menards' initiative and your contribution, some kids might wake up on Christmas morning without a toy in hand.

Witnessing our community rally each year to donate toys is truly inspiring. Extend a helping hand to others and share your time with those in need. Because when you do, you receive something truly priceless. Just envision the beaming smiles on those kids' faces.
