PERU — The season of giving and goodwill starts at Peru Mall.

The shopping center is partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program and Christmas Care to ensure a joyous holiday season for children in need. Tons of toys are needed to help make the holidays happy for local children.

Peru Mall is an official drop-off site for Toys for Tots, accepting new, unwrapped toys from Nov. 23 through Dec. 15. Donors can drop off unwrapped gifts in a special donation box located near the Armed Forces Career Center across from the mall management office.

The mall is also welcoming Christmas Care and its Giving Tree, designed to help children in the LaSalle/Peru area enjoy a special Christmas. Tags decorating the Giving Tree indicate a child’s age and sex, so that warm-hearted donors can shop for an appropriate gift. Donors can drop off new, unwrapped gifts of clothing and/or toys, from Nov. 23 through Dec. 15 in a special box located between Claire’s and Zale’s near center court.

Christmas Care volunteers will ensure delivery of gifts in time for Christmas.
