With less than 50 days until Christmas, West Chicago residents can help a child in need by donating a new/unopened toy to the Marines Toys for Tots Foundation.
The mission of the Marines Toys for Tots Foundation is to provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas, by collecting new, unwrapped toys.
Those interested can make a toy donation in person to the West Chicago Police Station, 325 Spencer Street from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. A collection drop-off box is located right inside the front lobby and will be available until December 21, 2021.
However, for those that might find it easier, a virtual toy donation can be made through a new link from Marine Toys for Tots called the Virtual Toy Box.
