Time to bust out some holiday cheer and get ready for Wendell Wonderland on Friday, December 2nd from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in downtown Wendell! A great night of events is in store, including live music, trolley rides, the Wendell United Methodist’s cookie walk, Santa & Mrs. Claus, a craft market, axe throwing, the Lake Myra Light Show, a snow machine, and a Toys for Tots Drive!

Every year beginning in November up until the Wendell Wonderland event, the Town hosts a Marine Toys for Tots Drive. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation coordinates with local social welfare agencies, church groups, and other local community agencies to distribute toys to children in need to help bring the joy of the holidays and send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children.

Starting November 10th, the Wendell Police Station, Wendell Town Hall, and the Wendell Community Center will have donation boxes in the lobby where you can donate new, unwrapped toys for kids up to age 12. There will also be two donation locations with Marines present at the Wendell Wonderland Event on December 2nd.

Thank you for your generosity and support and thank you to our corporate partners that have donated toys for the cause!
