Bartell Drugs is collecting holiday gifts for children in need during the 10th annual Salvation Army “Toy ‘N’ Joy” drive.

Toys will be distributed to low-income children and youth the week before Christmas through the Salvation Army’s “toy warehouses.”

“The drive helps make the holiday season brighter for deserving children,” said George D. Bartell, chairman and CEO of Seattle-based Bartell Drugs. “The generosity and support of our customers over the past nine years has been gratifying.”

The five-week drive in 2012 generated more than 5,400 toy donations —the estimated equivalent of $81,300 in toys provided to the Salvation Army.

Donations of new, unwrapped toys will be accepted at local stores through Dec. 14.

Donation options include:

  • Choose a “gift request tag” from the “Toy ‘N’ Joy” display in the store and return the gift to the donation barrel with the tag affixed to it.
  • Donate new, unwrapped gifts appropriate for children up to 14 years-of-age.

The Newcastle Bartell Drugs store is at 6939 Coal Creek Parkway S.E.
