Palatine’s 2012 Toys for Tots Campaign

November 26, 2012
The Village of Palatine Employees, Palatine and Inverness Police Departments, and the Palatine Fire Department, in conjunction with the United States Marine Corps Reserve, are teaming up for another “Toys for Tots” drive in Palatine. 
 
“The annual Toys for Tots campaign is an opportunity for the entire Village to provide assistance to needy families in Palatine and throughout the northwest suburbs,” stated Palatine Police Officer Wayne Sunderlin.
 
Last year, the Palatine community collected over 700 cubic feet of toys. To exceed last year’s totals, the Village of Palatine is proud to partner with Community Consolidated School District 15 schools, Marion Jordan, Lincoln, Hunting Ridge (PTA), Virginia Lake, Plum Grove Junior High, Sanborn, Sundling Junior High, Pleasant Hill, Lake Louise and Jane Addams Schools with their “Fill the Bus” campaign.
 
Everyone -- residents, Scout groups, churches, homeowner associations -- who wish to donate new, unwrapped toys, can drop them off at the following locations:
 
Palatine Village Hall                            200 East Wood Street
Palatine Fire Station 85                       39 East Colfax Street.
Inverness Village Hall                         1400 W. Baldwin Road, Inverness
Inverness Police Department             1415 Baldwin Road, Inverness
Inverness Park District                       300 Highland Street, Inverness
American Legion Post 690                 122 West Palatine Road
Knupper’s Nursery                              1801 N. Rand Road
 
Visit the Palatine’s Council chambers on Monday, December 10 to view all the donated toys on display and add to the collection your donated new, unwrapped toys, to fill the Chambers.
 
The toys collected will be distributed to children in the northwest metropolitan area by the U.S. Marine Corps (Marine Toys for Tots Foundation: www.toysfortots.org ).
