a toy-ful celebration for toys for tots!
Saturday, December 12th – 3:00 – 5:00 PM
Please join us for a safe variation on the 27-year-old tradition of enjoying great Christmas music AND collecting toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program!
Due to Covid-19 restrictions for indoor gatherings and concerts, this year we will present a very special drive-through-caroling event, presented by choir members, friends and families of Glenview Community Church, with individual “bubble” units presenting their favorite carol of the holiday season and with the U.S. Marines ready to accept our donations of NEW, UNWRAPPED toys. The Marines have never let kids in need down, so let’s not let THEM down and help them make Christmas morning “Toy-ful AND Joyful!!” Invite your family and friends to join in the fun, but most of all— BRING SOME TOYS! If you are unable to attend but still would like to donate new toys, you can bring them to the toy collection boxes at any of Glenview’s fire stations. Let’s not let COVID stop us from making Christmas bright for these kids!
