Bring as many new, unwrapped toys as you can! Shop as you would for your own (human) child, except please no realistic looking weapons or gifts with food.
For every new toy you bring, you’ll get a drink ticket that is good for any drink (until we close at 2am).
Light snacks will also be provided from 9pm to midnight (NOMZ!).
Your favorite bartenders will be donating their tips all night, so help them stack that paper hennyy!
The EFFEN Vodka **SHOT LUGE** is back this year! We are proud to be teaming up with EFFEN Vodka again. All sales of Effen shots from the luge will go directly to Toys for Tots.
BRING MORE TOYS, GET MORE DRINKS TICKETS.
If don’t have time to get a toy, we are happy to receive cash or credit card donations on the night of the event. If you’d like to donate but regrettably have to miss the Tree-Mendous Toy Drive, send a DM to Dusty or Brian, or donate directly to Toys for Tots Chicago HERE 🙂
U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program
Toys for Tots is a Top-Rated Charity
Over 97% of your donations goes to our mission of providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children. Less than 3% is spent on fundraising and overhead.
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
