What do the Marine Corps League Elgin Detachment 077 and The Elgin Symphony Orchestra have in common? They’re both helping less-fortunate kids have a very happy holiday season by teaming up with Toys for Tots!

They will be collecting unwrapped toys for all ages, so if you want to make a difference this holiday season here’s your chance! If you can’t make it during the performance the Sears Centre Box Office will be accepting items up until December 12th.

The Elgin Township Government Building, 729 S. McLean Blvd. will also be functioning as a Toys for Tots drop off center if this location is more convenient.
