Boston-area Toys for Tots overwhelmed by recent donations, but gifts for teens needed by others
But gifts for teens in short supply
Two weeks ago, officials at the Greater Boston Toys for Tots didn’t think they could meet this year’s demand for toys. But after appealing to the public for help, donations have poured in. On Monday, the group was overwhelmed by the number of toys overflowing from drop-off stations throughout the city. But a group that provides gifts for teenagers says that gifts are down this year.
