WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:  Last Year the Marines only provided 20% of our toy order for 3,000 kids and 800 families. Due to numerous challenges the past 12 years with that group, we are no longer partnering with Toys for Tots.  Going forward, we are running our own LOCAL Toy Drives where we focus on Local Giving, Local Impact, Local Spending and Hope for Christmas for LOCAL FAMILIES in Washington & Dakota County. 

PLEASE HELP WITH HOSTING A DRIVE: Your group, school or company can choose to collect Toys for Teens, Toys for all ages, Teen Stocking Stuffers Drive or Grocery Gift Card Drive. Every item donated stays local and serves local families in need.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas:  Stocking Stuffers suggested at $5.00 and could include: socks, earrings, nail polish, cards, scrunchies, pop sockets, reusable straws, gloves, hats, t-shirts, blankets, more....

Main Gift Ideas: May be $25+ and could include: lava lamps, athletic apparel, sleeping bags, arts & craft kits, tennis racquets & balls, skate boards, sleds, bedroom decore, jewelry holders, big fuzzy blankets, board games, reusable water bottles, echo dot, charging hubs, LED light strings, penny boards, portable hammocks, etc...

Please see our website for a full list of ideas by age. 

WHEN to START Collecting:  You may run your Toy Drive anytime between November 10th and December 10th, 2020.

When to STOP Collecting:  December 10, 2020
