The Marine Corps Reserve Dunkin’ Donuts Toys For Tots train won’t arrive in Whitehall until Sunday, Dec. 4, but families which want to register their children for toys must do it by Tuesday, Nov. 22.

Organized nationally by the  Reserve and locally by the American Legion and the Whitehall Volunteer Fire Company, the program aims to help needy families in need around the holidays. Dunkin’ Donuts provides a $30,000 donation and volunteer workers.

Upon departure of the Toys for Tots train, the donated toys are laid out in the Whitehall Volunteer Firehouse and register children are allowed in to pick up their gifts.

The care givers name and phone number is required along with the child’s name, age and gender. The program is open to children 12 years of age and younger.

To register, call Jim Lafayette at 499-1150 or call American Legion Post 83 at 499-2482.

The train, , presented by Canadian Pacific, will make its way across 12 communities throughout the state.

The train will start its run Dec. 3 in Binghamton and will make regional stops in Oneonta, Cobleskill and Delanson.  On Dec. 4, the train will make its way from Albany to Rouse Point with regional stops in Mechanicville, Saratoga and Whitehall.
