Toys for Tots of McLean County Toy Collection

Each year Toys for Tots of McLean County collects and distributes toys to thousands of children in need in our area.

The 2023 Toys for Tots campaign kicks off on November 10th but B104 and O’Brien Nissan are getting an early start to help make this the best year yet!

Bring your new, unwrapped toys donations to O’Brien Nissan (2029 Ireland Grove Rd. in Bloomington) or the B104 studios (236 Greenwood Ave. in Bloomington) for the kids in our area.

Toys of Tots knows that no child deserves to wake up on Christmas morning without a toy under their tree and we are asking for your help this holiday season to make it special for the kids in McLean County.

Other ways to get involved are:

  • Toys for Tots Silver Ball at The Castle Theatre on Saturday, November 25
  • Bowling for Toys at Pheasant Lanes on Saturday, December 2
  • Bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Bloomington-Normal Jaycee’s Holiday Parade on Saturday, December 2 to hand to a hero walking with Toys for Tots in the parade!
  • Visit Santa and Mrs. Claus at Santa’s Station on Friday, December 8 from 5 to 7pm in Uptown Normal! Visiting Santa is free, but cash donations are encouraged to benefit Toys for Tots of McLean County!
