Drop of donations for Toys for Tots in Maple Grove

There are several drop off sites for Toys for Tots donations throughout Maple Grove. Toys will be accepted through Wednesday, Dec. 19 unless otherwise noted below.

Since beginning the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program in 1947, Marines have distributed more than 452 million toys to more than 209 million needy children. Over its life span, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation has supplemented local toy collections with more than 98 million toys valued at more than $694 million; plus provided promotion and support materials valued at over $8.5 million.

In 2011, the Twin Cities Toys for Tots campaign distributed over 218,000 toys, books and stocking stuffers to over 157,000 children in the community. The campaign would not have been a success without the community volunteers that donated their time, services or goods to help support the Toys For Tots local campaign.

The Marine Toys For Tots Program seeks donations of new unwrapped toys to hand out to children in need during the holiday period. All Wells Fargo, Wal-Greens or Cub Foods locations are also accepting Toys for Tots donations. All donations must be neatly bagged otherwise they may not be accepted at the location.
