THE 40TH ANNUAL CHICAGO

TOYS FOR TOTS MOTORCYCLE PARADE

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2017

The Chicagoland Toys for Tots Motorcycle Parade Organization is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity. Our mission is to provide toys to individuals, youth groups, shelters, hospitals and group homes throughout Chicagoland. 

 
To request a toy, you must mail an actual letter to us, for we do not accept emails, texts, or fax. The letter must contain a brief description of your need, along with the age and genders of the children and the contact information. All toy requests are thoroughly examined and vetted by volunteers from our Toy Committee.

​​All letters must be in our hands by December 20.

Send your letter to:
Chicago TFT Motorcycle Parade
P.O. Box 388500
Chicago, IL, 60638

​​Welcome to

The Chicagoland

Toys For Tots

Motorcycle Parade


"The World's Greatest Motorcycle Parade" is an annual event in Chicago on the first Sunday in December. 
Each year 40 to 50 thousand motorcycle riders come to Chicago to ride together and donate toys for needy children.
All motorcyclists are welcome to participate in The Parade, provided they meet the following two requirements.

Every rider must bring at least one new, unwrapped toy to donate, and each motorcycle must display a clear, unobscured license plate.
Thanks for your support, and please consider becoming a TFT Parade volunteer. It takes many hands to organize The Parade.

 Help is always needed.
