Toys for Tots

For the 8th year, Y98 is proudly partnering with the United States Marine Corps (USMC), the Sempre Fi Society and  GJ Grewe Inc. for the annual Toys for Tots Campaign. The mission of the campaign is to collect new, unwrapped toys for children to spread the holiday cheer and ensure that every child has a toy under the Christmas tree. This national program is focused locally with all of the toys collected here in the St. Louis Metro Area being donated to children within our community (both on the Missouri and Illinois sides of the river). The goal of Toys For Tots is to deliver a message of hope to the children and inspire them to strive to make a positive impact in our community throughout their lives.

You can make this holiday special for St. Louis area children by donating a new, unwrapped toy or by making a monetary donation to the Toys for Tots Foundation. Help ensure that every child in the Metro St. Louis area will have a Holiday of Hope, with a new toy under the tree.

Use the menu above to find the donation locations and toy drive events at which you can participate this season.

Donation Suggestions

The USMC collects toys for all ages from 0 to 18 years old. This year, there is a higher need for toys for preteens and teens, ages 8 – 13 years old. Anything that you would buy for your child, niece/nephew, or friend at that age would make a great gift. Need some gift ideas? Here are a few:

  • DVDS, CDs, and MP3 players
  • Board games
  • Sporting equipment/bags/balls/skateboards/helmets
  • Books
  • Backpacks
  • Cosmetics, purses, or hair products (curling irons, hair straighteners, hair dryers)
  • Watch/wallet gift sets
  • Radio control cars/trucks or hand-held electronics

Please avoid these types of gifts:

  • Anything associated with guns (it’s okay to have a police man, but maybe not a swat team member with a gun)
  • Anything that has liquid or is flammable
  • Stuffed animals
