As part of our Toys for Tots and Teens Program serving 800 local families in need.
Counties Served: Washington, Dakota, Ramsey and Chisago
About Us: Run by all Local Volunteers WHO CARE! We are a Toys for Tots Distributor, 501c3 and started with 80 families 12 years ago and this year will serve 800 families. Our goal is to provide gifts, stocking stuffers, family gifts, local resources, and HOPE to our local families in need. Over 2,500 local kids will be served infant up to age 18. The Marines supply us with about 60% of our needs; we need YOUR HELP to provide the rest. There are 200 agencies that provide Toys for Tots to the Twin Cities and we are one of a few that serve the entire east metro. We encourage LOCAL Toy Drives with localized giving where your donation STAYS IN YOUR AREA and serves YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP: Last Year the Marines had nothing to provide for 10-14 year olds for our group for toys or stocking stuffers. We are one of the few Toys for Tots Distributors that actually provide toys up to age 18. We need your support! THANKS!
PLEASE HELP WITH HOSTING A DRIVE: Your group, school or company can choose to collect books, toys for teens, toys for all ages or stocking stuffers. Every item donated stays local and serves local families in need.
