‘Tis The Season: Toys For Tots Applications, Donations Now Open in Moline
If you know a kiddo who could use help getting a toy at Christmas or if you want to help a kid get a toy, you now have an outlet to do that in Moline.
Toys for Tots is open for the season in Moline, at the old Kone building located at 1 Montgomery Drive.
If you know a child in need of a toy at Christmas, you can submit an application to receive one from Toys for Tots here. Your deadline to register a kid to receive a toy is Friday, November 25th and the child must be between 6 months old-12 years old.
Families can submit the application online but they also have to provide in-person verification starting October 13th. You'll have to bring with you photo ID and proof that you have guardianship of the child (including proof of the child's birthday, like a birth certificate). The last day to verify in person is December 3rd. Details are in Toys for Tots' Facebook post.
If you have a new, unwrapped toy that you would like to donate to Toys for Tots, you can take it to a big list of QC locations, which you can find here. If you don't have a toy to give but you still want to help out Toys for Tots, you can donate any amount of money at this link.
If you need to stop by the Toys for Tots office, they are open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. You should enter from the door on the west side of the building.
You can get more details about applications or donations for the Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots at their website.
