Warsaw Rotary is again collecting toys for youth in Kosciusko County to make children's lives brighter this Christmas.

"Warsaw Rotary has been collecting toys for children since 1927 that has become an 80-year tradition," said Ken Locke, community ministries director for the Salvation Army.

Toys are needed for children ages 12 and under.

Warsaw Rotary meets at noon Friday at the Ramada Plaza Hotel in Warsaw. Toys can be dropped off Friday at the reception desk.

People also can drop off toys at Kmart in Warsaw at the service desk.

The toys will be collected until Monday, and the Salvation Army will distribute the toys Tuesday.

People who want to contribute financially can mail checks to the Salvation Army, P.O. Box 175, Warsaw, IN 46581 with "Rotary Toy Day" in the memo line.
