Toys For Tots Donation Center

Official Toys For Tots Donation Center

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and Metro Transmission and Automotive is doing our part to make this Christmas Season a little brighter. This year marks the 75th anniversary of Toys for Tots, and we want to make sure it’s our most successful drive yet!

For the 2022 year we are very proud to be an official donation center for the Toys for Tots Program. From now until December 13th we will be collecting new, unwrapped gifts that will be distributed by the US Marine Corp Reserve for the upcoming holiday season.

We’re asking for your help to join us in bringing joy this year to the less fortunate children in our area, so please, stop by to donate a new, unwrapped gift. We’ll be collecting toys from November 7th through December 13th

Frequently Asked Questions

Most campaign sites are able to assist children up to age 12, but in many local communities, local support is such that the age limit may be extended. Check with your local campaign for age limits.

Toys for Tots does not publish a list of appropriate toys to donate.  If such a list were created, most would follow it, resulting in a limited selection of items to distribute in each community.   We would rather our donors consider what might be an appropriate gift for their own child/relative, purchase the item, and donate to Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food.  If donated, such items will NOT be distributed.

The Foundation does purchase supplemental toys/gifts for our campaign sites and focuses on these age groups.  In the past, items purchased for these groups have included, but are not limited to:  sporting equipment/bags/balls; books, backpacks, cosmetics, purses, watch/wallet gift sets, bath gift sets, board games, radio control cars/trucks, hand-held electronics, skateboards/helmets, curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers.
