The direct line to Santa Claus in Door County is now open. Door County Toys for Kids opened its registration for this year’s toy distribution on Friday with its online form. For those who cannot fill out the form online, interested families can sign up at the PATH Clubhouse in Sturgeon Bay on November 20th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and on December 4th from 10 a.m. to noon. Families in northern Door will be able to talk to Cindy Trinkner-Peot to register at the Northern Door Children’s Center in Sister Bay. After everything is collected, families will be able to receive their toys at the United Methodist Church in Sturgeon Bay on December 10th from 8 a.m. to noon or on December 11th at the Northern Door Children’s Center from noon to 1 p.m. Last year, the organization gave over 2,000 gifts to more than 400 children as a part of their effort, something Door County Toys for Kids Vice President Jackie Baermann says would not be possible without the community’s support.
As for those hoping to donate money or toys to the Door County Toys for Kids Drive, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for donation boxes throughout the county in the coming weeks.
