UPDATE: Toys For Tots Pickup starts today! Numbers 1-380 will be ready for pickup!

UPDATE: The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, with help this year from The Salvation Army, collects and distributes new, unwrapped toys to children and families in need.

Families may place their children on the gift list by calling one of the request lines. Phone lines are typically busy, so callers may need to keep trying until they get through. There's nothing KHQ can do to bypass the system and jump a caller to the front of the line.

Phone calls to place requests for toys will be taken from Nov. 1 to Nov. 30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.


The numbers to call are:
(509) 216-3390
(509) 216-3465
(509) 216-3572
(509) 216-3323
(509) 216-3357
(509) 216-3429
(509) 216-5333
(509) 217-1350
(509) 217-1878
(509) 216-5093

Families who sign up for gifts will be given a ticket number and may pick up their gifts at the Toys for Tots warehouse when their request has been completed. Toy pickups begin on November 30.

Gifts are intended for children, ages 0-15

Toys for Tots Warehouse Address:
106 E. Francis Ave.
