Toys for Tots

The U.S. Marine Corps has established dropoff locations in Channahon and Minooka to collect new toys for children in need during the 2019 holiday season.

The locations are the Channahon Fire Station, Coldwell Banker-Honig Bell, Kidz Korner Day Care, Kiddie Kampus Day Care and Loders Croklaan, Minooka Fire Station, Dimensions Barbers and Salon, and Minooka High School (south campus).

Or, instead of purchasing toys, mail a donation check to Toys for Tots Foundation, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Center, Company E, 4th Reconnaissance Battalion, 2711 McDonough St., Joliet, Illinois 60436.
