Local Organization in Need of New and Used Toys for Annual Toy Sale
Brighton Center is in need of used toys in working condition for the Annual Used Toy Sale.
Each year, Brighton Center sponsors the Used Toy Sale for young children ages 2-12 to "shop" for their friends, family, or siblings. Used toys and bikes that have been donated to Brighton Center are cleaned and sorted by volunteers throughout the months of November and December.
Toys are priced at $.05, $.10, and $.25 cents so that children can have the experience of buying gifts for others.
Used toy donations are accepted through the Clothing Closet at 799 Ann Street in Newport, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Donations for the sale can be made through December 9 and battery donations are greatly appreciate to recharge used toys.
Last year, the Used Toy Sale drew 258 children who shopped with the help of Brighton Center staff and volunteers to purchase toys. The Used Toy Sale will take place this year on Saturday, December 12 starting at 10 a.m. at 741 Central Avenue in Newport. Children ages 2-12 will shop with a volunteer or staff member while their parents or guardian waits in a separate area.
