We know many Seattleites make it a holiday tradition to bring toys to their local fire station to benefit the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots. While we aren’t able to receive visitors at our stations this year, Seattle firefighters and the Marine Corps will be at these locations to collect toys in a safe, no-contact way:
Bring your donation of new, unwrapped toys and join us at these locations:
Sunday, Dec. 6 at the University Village parking lot (NE 45th St.)
Saturday, Dec. 12 at the Rainier QFC (2707 Rainier Ave. S)
Both events are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Firefighters and Marines will direct you through the drop through area where you can place your donations into the Toys for Tots collection bins.
If you can’t make either event, there are dozens of Seattle-area locations where you can donate. Companies like Edward Jones, Pep Boys and CubeSmart Self Storage will collect at several of their locations. Other participating organizations and businesses can be found at this link. Check closely for the last day those locations can accept toys. Most wrap up by December 14.
The final day to bring toys directly to the Marine Corps’ warehouse in Kent is Wednesday, Dec. 16: 20408 87th Ave. S.
Help make this holiday season a little brighter for families who have been through so much this year. Your support is greatly appreciated!
