Community members are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys to support the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots campaign.
The Ohio State University’s Department of Public Safety will host a drive-through event to collect donations curbside on Thursday, December 9, 2021, from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., in front of Blankenship Hall. The event is located at 901 Woody Hayes Drive in Columbus, but drivers are encouraged to enter behind the building from Kenny Road because of nearby construction.
Can’t make drive-through event? No problem. Drop your toys off to the donation boxes located inside Blankenship Hall or at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center’s Hospital Security Office (S128 Rhodes Hall, 450 W. 10th Ave.) by December 10.
All items collected will be distributed to kids throughout central Ohio via the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program. In 2020, the Columbus Toys for Tots program distributed 24,438 toys and supported 15,324 children!
Please note, we will NOT accept money, gift cards, realistic weapons of any kind, or food items under any circumstances. For more information, visit the Columbus Toys for Tots website.
