[ARCHIVED] 2020 Toys for Tots Campaign

Toys for Tots 2020

Toys for Tots

The U.S. Marine Corps 2020 Toys for Tots Campaign has begun, and the Police Department is a DuPage County donation drop-off site. Now through Thursday, December 10, at 7:00 p.m., new unwrapped toys in original packaging may be dropped off at the Police Department for children between the ages of newborn and 12-years old. Donations will be accepted during regular business hours, which are Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. (weekends and City holidays excluded).

Monetary donations may be made online through the Marine Corps Toys for Tots website, and will be used to purchase toys for children within DuPage County when shortages occur. The Police Department will not be able to accept monetary donations.

All toys collected will be distributed to DuPage County children in need.  Questions regarding this campaign may be directed to Community Service Officer Perry at 630-393-2131. The DuPage County Marine Corps has provided the following donation guidelines: 

Items accepted: New/Unwrapped toys and items for older kids like hand-held electronics, jewelry sets, cosmetics, arts and crafts, model kits, creative/educational toys, and athletic equipment. 

Items to avoid: Gift cards (secure online monetary donations can be made, instead); toys that could lead to a choking hazard. 

Items not accepted: Food, used stuffed animals, clothing, and realistic-looking weapons.
