Toys for Tots

The Toys-For-Tots program goes to the heart of the Tellico Village Woodworkers. This annual Toys-For-Tots event was started in 1998. Each December members present to the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office toys made by individuals or teams of woodworkers.

In the years since the Loudon County Sheriff’s / Tellico Village Woodworker’s Toys-For-Tots program has been conducted, the Tellico Village Woodworkers Club members have built and donated more than 7,650 wooden toys. The following are some recent statistics:

  • 2015 – 525
  • 2014 – 500
  • 2013 – 744
  • 2012 – 625+
  • 2011 – 850+
  • 2010 – 625+
  • 2009 – 525+
  • 2008 – 500+

The toys range from the simple to the complex. But rest assured, each toy that is given brings joy to the child, as well as the toy builder.
