KARE 11 and the Marines want to make sure that children in the Twin Cities have toys this holiday season. The Marines have reported that donations are down this year. How can you help? 

You can make a monetary donation through KARE 11's Give 11. It's a website that makes it easy to donate whatever you can afford. You can also donate directly to the Marines.

The KARE 11 Toys for Tots tent closes at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 16. You can still donate a new, unwrapped toy at the Toys for Tots warehouse. They will be collecting through Dec. 18 at 4 p.m. Any additional toys will be used in 2019.

Funds donated to Give 11 are collected and distributed by the Minnesota Community Foundation. Funds donated will be donated from the Minnesota Community Foundation to the nonprofit organization you have chosen to support.
