INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The holiday season is upon us, and CBS4 has once again teamed up with the Marines to collect toys and gifts for local children in need.
Our annual Toys for Tots campaign kicks off Monday, Nov. 11, and we’re asking for your help filling donation bins across central Indiana.
New, unwrapped toys for children ages 0-14 can be dropped off at any Indiana Members Credit Union (IMCU), Planet Fitness or Andy Mohr Automotive location. If you prefer, you can also make a cash donation online.
We will also be collecting toys outside of Lucas Oil Stadium on Dec. 1 before the Indianapolis Colts take on the Tennessee Titans at 1 p.m.
On Thursday, Dec. 5, Titan Lights will donate $1 for every person who attends Christmas Nights of Lights, a drive-thru holiday light show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
Donated toys will go to more than 40,000 underprivileged Hoosier children in 11 counties. As in previous years, the greatest need is for infants and teenagers.
In 2018, Toys for Tots distributed 45,652 toys to 43,052 children in central Indiana.
