The City of Oak Ridge and the Oak Ridge Police Department are taking donations for the non-profit Toys for Tots Foundation this holiday season. All donated toys will be collected by volunteers and distributed to local families in need this December.
Residents interested in donating to the program can drop off toys in the designated bins around town until Monday, Dec. 7. We ask that all toy donations be new and unwrapped. Donations should also be appropriate for a child that falls into the newborn, infant/toddler, youth, or teen (up to 14) age range.
Donation bins will be set up in the following locations in Oak Ridge:
Oak Ridge Police will also host a collection event on Monday, Dec. 7, from 2 to 6 p.m., near the entrance of T.J. Maxx. Monetary donations will not be accepted at the collection event but can be made directly to the Toys for Tots organization online at https://knoxville-tn.toysfortots.org/.
Anderson and Roane County families are able to request toys through the program until Friday, November 20. The Toys for Tots registration form is available online.
Additional questions can be directed to the Oak Ridge Police Department at (865) 425-3504.
