Toys for Tots Tuesday

Toys for Tots Tuesday

December 8, 2020  |  7am to 7pm

Town Square Park in The District at Prairie Trail

The Marine Toys for Tots program has many events in the local Des Moines area, including Toys for Tots Tuesday, which is sponsored by KCCI-TV, Fareway, American Equity and others.

This year, Toys for Tots Tuesday will be held in The District at Prairie Trail!

We’re excited to have the Town Square Park as the site for this important event.

The United States Marines and volunteers will be on hand to accept donations. They will be located in the Pavilion in The Town Square Park.



Drive through and Donate

A drive-through donation area will be setup on Tuesday, December 8th, so donors can easily drive up and drop off their donation without getting out of their cars.

The Marines and volunteers will accept the donations.

Special directional signage will help people easily get to the drive-up donation area.

A portion of SW Main Street on the west side of The Town Squar Park, will be closed to through traffic.

First 250 donors will receive a $10 District Gift Card!

We encourage our local residents, patrons and friends to make a donation! The first 250 people to donate on Toys for Tots Tuesday, will receive a special promotional $10 District Gift Card, accepted at shops and restaurants in The Diistrict. The $10 District Gift Cards will be handed out by volunteers as people come to the Town Square Park to make their donation. 

Directions to Donation Area

Social distancing measures will be in place, including a limit of no more than 30 people in the Town Square Park at one time. Masks are required.
