Metra again will partner with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation for a holiday toy drive at all four downtown Chicago Metra terminals on Tuesday, Dec. 14.
“Year after year, Metra customers and employees have shown how willing they are to help make the holidays brighter for the community and children in need,” said Metra CEO/Executive Director Jim Derwinski. “I’d like to thank them in advance for their generous donations, which truly embody the spirit of My Metra and of the holidays – taking responsibility for ourselves and others.”
New and unwrapped toys or cash donations will be collected by Marines and Metra employees at Chicago Union Station, Ogilvie Transportation Center, Millennium Station, and LaSalle Street Station. All donations will be given directly to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation for distribution to those in need. Donations will be accepted during the morning rush period (6 – 9 a.m.).
This is the tenth time Metra and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation have teamed up to collect toys and monetary donations.
