The annual “Toys for Tots” ride will happen on Sunday, Dec. 11 beginning in New Boston, Texas and ending in Texarkana.

The ride starts in the parking lot of the CVS in New Boston, Texas which is the old Walmart at 9AM. The ride then travels to Texarkana and everyone will be up in the west end of the Central Mall parking lot in Texarkana, Texas. The ride will leave the mall at 10AM headed to the Texarkana Convention Center for refreshments. There will be a live auction at the Elks Lodge located at 3702 New Boston Road, Texarkana, Texas, beginning at approximately 1PM, when the event wraps up at the convention center.

Admission to both of these events is a $5 donation or a new, unwrapped toy.

“We are hoping to raise at least $5,000,” said Dwight Nevill, event organizer. “We started this ride in 1982 and it has gotten bigger every year. If it doesn’t rain, it will be a big one this year. The live auction at the Elks Lodge is where we raise a lot of money to buy toys. We’ll have all kinds of stuff to auction off like household items, collectibles, Harley Davidson products and a lot more. Everyone is welcome."
