Kane County Toys for Tots Season Has Begun!

Kane County Toys for Tots Season Has Begun!

The Kane County Toys for Tots program is one of the best ways to celebrate the holiday season with gifts that truly can help others.

“Thank you for taking the time to visit our local website and seeking additional information about the Kane County Toys for Tots program,” said Patrick Kackert, organizer of the Kane County Toys for Tots program. “We collect new and unwrapped toys as well as donations to purchase toys that go to children in Kane County that would otherwise wake up Christmas morning with emptiness far greater than the space under a tree.”

How can you help? Here are some suggestions, as well as the locations and times for drop-off:

Donate a toy!

If you have a new and unwrapped toy that you would like to donate, simply find the closest and most convenient drop-off location. Drop off a toy in the collection box and volunteers will collect it!

Toy Suggestions: “We are always in need of toys for girls and boys age 18 months and younger and girls and boys ages 10 to 14,” Kackert said.

Attend an event!

A lot of local businesses and organizations are willing to throw an event, such as a toy drive, or are having an event of their own that will benefit the Kane County Toys for Tots program. Check out the Local Events page on the website and pick an event to attend.

You will be able to drop off a new and unwrapped toy or even make a donation.

Send a Donation!

If you can’t get out to a drop-off location or an event, you can still help by making a donation to the Kane County Toys for Tots program!

You can mail a check or money order (made out to Toys for Tots) c/o CWO4 Patrick Kackert, 100 N Lincolnway, Suite A, North Aurora, Illinois 60542.  Again, please make sure the check is made out to TOYS FOR TOTS.

Or, you can simply click on the Donate Online link on the top left hand side of the home page. It will take you through the necessary steps and best of all; the donation will stay in Kane County!

Become a Drop-Off site!

Are you a business or organization that would like to become a drop-off location or hold an event for Toys for Tots? Complete the Become a toy drop site form located under Support the Program heading.

Please note, due to a limited number of volunteers, organizations are asked to pick up their supplies at Restoration Techs, 100 N Lincolnway, Suite A, North Aurora. Check the website for hours or email toysfortots@restorationtechs.com.
