U.S. Marine Corps Reserves / Niles Fire department Seeks Toys For The Holidays - toys for Tots Drive

The Niles Fire Department announces their fourth annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserves / Niles Fire Department Toys for Tots Drive. The Marine Corps Reserves is celebrating 60 years of community service that has touched many families throughout our country.

Last year was a great success and it’s our hope that with the generosity of the community and in the spirit of the holidays, the lives of many more children will be touched. There is a great need throughout our own community as well as nationwide.

You can make that difference.

The Niles Fire Department will be collecting toys at both fire stations located at 8360 W. Dempster Street and 6611 Jarvis, we will also have drop off boxes at the Niles Senior Center, 999 Civic Center Drive and the Niles Fitness Center located at 987 Civic Center Drive. The Niles Police Department located at 7000 W. Touhy is also a collection site and all donations are most appreciated!

Per the U.S. Marine Corps guidelines, all toys must be new and unwrapped, no stuffed animals or toiletries please.

Toys will be collected from Monday, November 5 through Friday, December 21 at 12 p.m..
