JLE-NS is holding a donation drive for the Toys for Tots program this holiday season. Toys for Tots is a program started in 1947 and run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. 97% of the donation goes directly to the mission providing books, toys, and other gifts to less fortunate families.
Please help support this important program by dropping off your donations of new and unwrapped toys to the following locations: JLE-NS Office, 620 Lincoln Avenue in Winnetka, JLE-NS Thrift House store, 920 Chicago Avenue in Evanston, or Central Station Coffee & Tea, 1150 Central Avenue in Wilmette. We will be collecting donations through December 15th.
If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please scan the QR code or go to: https://www.jle-ns.org/system/donate_summary and select “JLE-NS Donation” and in the comments section, write “Toys for Tots” and JLE-NS will present the U.S. Marine Corps with a check at the end of our donation drive.
