Carle at The Fields
THE REASON WE GIVE
Everyone has personal reasons to give back, and different ways they can offer assistance to those in need. Whether giving of your time, money or talents, giving to this Toy Drive will positively impact children in Champaign-Urbana and Vermilion County who might not otherwise have a gift to open – and that is a great reason to give.
Last year, this event collected nearly 2,100 toys and more than $4,900 in monetary donations. It’s easy to donate online.
The goal is to provide more gifts for kids ages 9 through 12, an age that often gets overlooked because they’re harder to shop for than small children. Check out the toy suggestions below for unique gift ideas for these older kids.
ONE-DAY DRIVE-THRU LOCATIONS
From 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 12 is your chance to deliver your new, unwrapped toys and gifts for children up to age 12 at these locations.
- Administrative Center at Carle at The Fields, Curtis Road and I-57, Champaign
