MARION, Ill. (KFVS) - Topple the Tow Truck wrapped up for the season and organizers called it a “great success.”

The towing company PMR teamed up with Toys for Tots, along with area retailers Rural King and Jack & Josie’s, over two weekends in early November to collect 80 toys and nearly $400 in monetary donations.

According to organizers, this surpassed their 2020 collections.

“It was so great,” said PMR Manager Nicole Miskelley in a news release. “The event has definitely grown since last year. We love getting to do this, despite the cold, and we can’t wait to do it again next year.”

PMR is still collecting toys for Toys for Tots, as well as hosting a Salvation Army Angel Tree.

Those who donate will receive coupons for discounts towards services.

The Angel Tree and Senior Star program has suggested donations on the adoption cards. Toys for Tots is accepting new, unwrapped books, toys and activities for kids ages 0-12, as well as monetary donations.

Donations will be accepted at PMR now through December 10.
