Toys for Tots campaign starts earlier, will look a bit different

Make a donation online, purchase from the Amazon wish list, or visit one of these drop-off locations

INDIANAPOLIS — CBS4 is proud to partner with the U.S. Marines again this year for the Toys for Tots campaign.

The pandemic has led organizers to start things a little earlier this year. Starting Thursday through mid-December, you can donate new toys at any drop box you see. Scroll down for the complete list of central Indiana drop-off locations.

There won’t be as many this drop-off spots year because officials don’t want to encourage crowds. Instead, the Marine Corps is asking people to consider a monetary donation this year.

“We’re lacking a little bit on toys. That’s why we’re pushing so hard on the monetary donations,” GySgt. Alexander Baye, Toys for Tots coordinator said. “Everybody wants to see kids happy especially around Christmas time. This is something we can all support.”

In an effort to lift spirits during the pandemic, Toys for Tots donated two million games, toys, and books to families this past spring and early summer. Now they need your help to make the holidays brighter for Hoosier children.

If you want to make a donation, you can visit the Toys for Tots of Central Indiana website. You’ll also find information about the Amazon Wish List for the kids.
