The Christmas holiday season is rapidly approaching and EXIT By the Bay Realty has once again opened their doors to assist Toys for Tots of Calvert County to help as many children as possible have a festive Christmas.  Please stop by our office at 222 Merrimac Court, Prince Frederick, MD 20678 to drop off your donation to be a part of this event.

The annual toy drive kicked off Monday, November 3rd and organizers are counting on community donations to help more than 1,000 local children in need this year. Residents can contribute to a local Toys for Tots campaign in several ways, including donating a toy at one of the local toy drop locations, making a monetary donation or volunteering at the local warehouse.

New, unwrapped toys will be collected through December 10th at more than 60 drop-off sites located throughout Calvert County.  If you are unable to drop by our office, monetary donations are appreciated as well and funds received are used to purchase toys wherever a shortfall exists. Credit card donations are accepted via the website and checks made payable to the Toys for Tots Foundation can be mailed to P.O. Box 207, Barstow, MD 20610.

If you are interested in volunteering to collect, sort, count or distribute toys, books and stocking stuffers for 1,000 children, register at
