The AAA South Dakota store in Yankton is celebrating the spirit of the holiday season by helping the United Way of Greater Yankton collect toys and other items for its annual ‘Toys for Kids’ drive.
From Nov. 14 through Dec. 14, members of the public — whether they are AAA members or not — may drop donated items by AAA, located at 2503 Fox Run Pkwy., Suite 5, Yankton, during regular business hours, Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
“The Yankton community is always so good to us, so it is our honor to give back, assist those in need and help make the holidays special for kids,” said Terri Gillam, retail manager of the AAA Yankton store. “This year is especially challenging for many families, so we urge the community to get behind the United Way’s ‘Toys for Kids’ drive and donate and item or two,”
