Toys For Tots Registration Numbers Down

Christmas morning may not be so special for some local kids this year .

Toys For Tots, the program that helps families in need get presents for their children has only registered 100 families so far this year.

Last year the organization registered more than 900 families.

This year, volunteers are not making any phone calls to families to set up appointments. The organization asks anyone interested to sign up at the Toys For Tots warehouse.

The warehouse is located at 4865 University drive in Evansville.

Here is when you can sign up:

Monday : 1pm - 6 pm
Thursday 9 am - 2pm
Saturday: 8 am - 5pm

Organizers believe the change in how registration is done  is why numbers are down.

The deadline to register for the program is November 18th  and organizers say it will not be extended.
