Mundelein Offers Three Toys for Tots Collection Sites

In celebration of the 2019 holiday season, the Village of Mundelein, the Mundelein Police Department and the Mundelein Fire Department are all partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve to collect toys for the Toys for Tots program. If you would like to help a child have a Merry Christmas, bring your unwrapped donation to any of the three Mundelein locations. Toys for Tots primary goal is to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate children. In turn, this generosity will help contribute to them becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.

Toys for Tots collections boxes are located in the Mundelein Village Hall lobby, 300 Plaza Circle, the Mundelein Police Department lobby at 221 North Lake Street or at the Mundelein Fire Station, 1000 North Midlothian Road. The toys will be picked up by the Marines. Toys will be accepted Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through December 15, 2019.

As part of the campaign, U.S. Marines and over 35,000 volunteers help collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those gifts to less fortunate children. In 2018, the Chicago Toys for Tots campaign distributed 101,214 toys to 96,864 children. The northeast Cook/southern Lake Counties' chapter distributed 32,974 toys to 15,211 children, and in Lake County - Great Lakes, 67,924 toys were distributed to 18,690 children.

No child should go without a toy at Christmas! Please open your hearts!
