Indianapolis’ Toys for Tots campaign receives national award

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — WISH-TV is proud to partner with Toys for Tots as the Indianapolis campaign is being recognized on a national level.

It has been named the 2020 Toys for Tots National Marine Unit of the Year.

This is the first national award for Indianapolis.

Last year, the organization served more than 30,000 children in Indianapolis and 12 other counties.

Governor Eric Holcomb congratulated the organizations work Tuesday at his office, praising those who helped make the award possible.

“If you’ve donated, volunteered, thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Holcomb said.

Toys for Tots says due to fewer restrictions, the sky is the limit on what they can achieve this year.
