COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Anyone donating a toy to Toys for Tots could get a deal on surplus state property in South Carolina.

Officials at the South Carolina Surplus Property Office say a customer who donates at least $50 in toys can buy a surplus laptop computer for $25. The computers usually sell for $200.

A $75 toy donation at the surplus office in West Columbia will get a $300 discount on automobiles. On items like office equipment and furniture, a $15 toy gets a 25 percent discount; a $25 toy gets a 50 percent off; and a $50 toy gets a 70 percent discount.

Officials say customers just need to bring the toy and a receipt to get the deals, which run through Dec. 12.
