MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A Dane County nonprofit is collecting toys this weekend for those who need it most, and they are short just 100 gifts, or $5000.

The Boys & Girls Club of Dane County is hosting a Holiday Extravaganza. The organization will provide their over 450 members with gifts this holiday season.

This weekend during the ‘Fill the Bus’ initiative, the community can donate toys and gifts to any of the clubs around the area. Donations are being accepted until 4 p.m. Sunday or online at https://www.bgcdc.org/holidayextravaganza.

Marketing and communications director Amy Fenwick said so far this year they are not collecting as many donations as years prior.

“It’s usually been pretty good, we hit our goals, and this year has just been a little tough. But I think it’s tough everywhere, so we’re just doing what we can, getting the word out there for Boys & Girls Club of Dane County that we are still collecting,” she said.

Fenwick said they are especially in need of gifts for teens.

“Teens are kind of hard to buy for maybe. Maybe people don’t know exactly what teens want these days, but anything sports related, we have some good examples, anything sports related, girls love nails, nail stuff, nail kits, body lotions, things like that.”

Organizers said the Holiday Extravaganza will continue through next week or until the organization reaches its goal.
