OKEMOS, Mich. (WLNS) β€” Dozens of toys were brought to Carpet Studio Flooring America when the family business hosted its annual Toys for Tots drive.

The drive was put together as a way to give back to the community. Participants had the opportunity to donate new and unwrapped toys.

Those who donated gifts were entered into a drawing for prizes provided by other local businesses.

The donated toys will be given by the US Marine Corps in conjunction with the Lansing Home Builders Association to families throughout mid-Michigan who cannot afford Christmas gifts for their children.

β€œOne of the reasons we wanted to do this today is to support small businesses on Saturday. It’s a great cause and we continue to support Toys for Tots,” said Tom Almazan, co-owner of Carpet Studio Flooring America.

If you missed the toy collection on Saturday, you can make a donation until December 6th. You can drop off new and unwrapped toys at the Carpet Studio Flooring America showroom in Okemos.
