A big storm is coming this week. Heavy snow and wind are on the way. This could get ugly.

But it won't stop a yearly tradition of gathering toys and food for needy families in Natrona County.

People in our community need our help, and they will have it.

Each year at this time Townsquare media, along with other helpful members of the community gather toys for needy families in time for Christmas.

Camp is set up outside of Casper's east Walmart location, on 2nd street.

Some years the weather is not bad.

Some years, it's DOWN RIGHT BRUTAL.

But that never stops the volunteers from coming out and never stops the people of Casper from opening their hearts and their wallets.

The volunteers know this storm is coming but they are going to do it anyway.

The is to collect toys and gifts to make sure no Casper child goes without this Christmas.

Plus feeding them well beyond the holidays, with the vital Weekend Food Bags provided through the Wyoming Food for Thought Project.

Families will be helped through the Wyoming Food for Thought Project, the Casper Housing Authority, the Boys & Girls Club, the Child Development Center, and Orr’s Hope Foundation.

Look for the Townsquare media trailer in front of Walmart East from 7 ‘til 7 each day, as to collect new, unwrapped toys and clothes for kids of all ages, plus cash – over 3,000 kids on our Christmas will get help.
