We’re Collecting Toys!
We’re excited to announce that we will be collecting toys at our four clinic locations for Toys for Tots Twin Cities 2021! Toys for Tots is a wonderful way to connect with the community and help out families during the holidays.
We will be accepting new, unwrapped toys at our four Twin Cities locations during our normal hours Monday, December 6th to Friday, December 13th. Click here for a list of clinic locations and addresses.
All donations will be delivered to KARE11, an official drop-off site for Toys for Tots Twin Cities. Watch for our appearance live on KARE 11 on December 13th at 6 PM!
What can you donate?
Toys for Tots accepts new, unwrapped toys. Some examples are games, action figures, dolls, baby toys, puzzles, and non-realistic-looking weapons. They do accept homemade toys but ask that they are safe and free of sharp edges and small items that could be swallowed or otherwise injure the children that receive these donations.
Toys are distributed to kids from 0 – 15 years old. Typically, there is a shortage of toys for infants and teenagers. Gift cards are accepted but are not distributed as gifts. The Marines take donated gift cards and purchase gifts for the program.
