Toys for Tots: Embrace the Spirit of Giving

Sangamon County Toys for Tots is reminding the community of its annual Toys for Tots campaign, an initiative aimed at ensuring every child experiences the joy and wonder of the holiday season. This year, more than ever, leaders say they are committed to bringing smiles to the faces of underprivileged children across our community.

In collaboration with the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program, they invite generous community members, partners, and friends to join them in making a significant impact in the lives of children by donating new, unwrapped toys from now through December 7, 2023.

Collection boxes are located all over Sangamon County. A list and map can be found at;

How to Participate:

•Donate a Toy: Bring new, unwrapped toys to any of our collection points.

•Volunteer: Join a dedicated team of volunteers to assist in organizing and distributing the toys and picking up and delivering full boxes from collection box locations to a warehouse.

•Spread the Word: Share the campaign on social media and invite your friends, family, and colleagues to participate.

•Host a Toys for Tots event

Every contribution, big or small, has the potential to make a monumental difference in a child’s life this holiday season. Toy for Tots officials say they believe that every child deserves a merry and bright holiday and are confident that with the support of our compassionate community, they will hit the goal of 10,000 toys.

About Sangamon County, IL Toys for Tots Program

Toys for Tots, a 76-year National charitable Program run by the U.S. Marine Corps, provides happiness and hope to less fortunate children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by Marines and volunteers offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. We believe it is such experiences that help disadvantaged children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. For more information, visit
