Types of Toys Needed
The USMCR Toys for Tots Program needs toys for all children, from infants to teenagers, but we especially need gifts for young girls between the ages of 10 and 14, so please keep them in mind when you're shopping for toys. Batteries are also needed, so if your gift uses them, please include extra batteries with your gift, or consider giving a box of batteries as your gift.
Remember that we want to discourage the donation of stuffed, plush animals because they bring many health problems with them. Instead, consider donating sports equipment, games, books, dolls, toy vehicles, crafts, etc. And remember, do NOT gift wrap your gifts.
Many restaurants and pubs are
having parties after The Parade, and are marked with a *.
Check with the individual business for more details.
Anyone who wishes to receive toys for underprivileged children should contact their local church, school, hospital or community aid organization.
All neighborhood, charitable groups seeking toys to distribute should contact the USMCR Toys for Tots Program at 3034 West Foster, Chicago, 60625 or call 773-539-7393.
