How to Donate to Toys for Tots

Marine Corps program is 65 years old. Tri-Valley locations accepting toys through Friday.

This year the U.S. Marine Corps' Toys for Tots drive has received more than 80,000 requests for toys.

That's pretty amazing for a charity that started 65 years ago in Los Angeles with a single toy made by the wife of a Marine Corps major.

There are dozens of places where you can donate new, unwrapped toys in eastern Alameda County.

To find a spot nearest you, enter your zip code on the Livermore-Pleasanton Firefighters Toys for Tots website. Donations are being accepted through Friday.

You can also donate cash to the program online here.

Please note, the Oakland Mayor's office has issued an alert to beware of possible Toys for Tots scams. Collection boxes should be properly labeled with Toys for Tot stickers in the upper left corner or on one side of the box.
