CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Well as you know The Holidays will look much different in 2020, however many toy drives are still taking place amid another potential shutdown.

Coming up this weekend The Toys for Tots Drive of Laramie County will be set up at several locations throughout town. However, due to certain restrictions, there are challenges that lie ahead for the annual toy drive.
