The deadline for submitting applications for Toys for Tots is fast approaching.

Organizers with the ASSIST Agency say the deadline for turning in completed applications with all necessary documentation is November 14, 2018, at 3:00 pm.

“Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. We do not accept faxed, mailed, or emailed applications.”  a press release states.

Applications must be turned in to the offices in person and applicants must reside in the parish in which they apply. 

Children up to 12 years old and special needs children ages 12 and above will be considered to receive Toys for Tots. 

Proof of need and identification is required.  Parent’s photo ID and either each child’s Medicaid card or the SNAP printout with each child’s name listed must accompany the application.
