10/11 hosts toy drive to help the Center for People in Need
Monday, November 7

Every child should have something under the tree this holiday season, and that’s why 10/11 Cares is partnering with the Center for People in Need to collect toys and gift cards for their annual Toyland event.

Bring a new, unwrapped gift to the 10/11 Studios at 840 N. 40th St. between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday Nov. 7-18. Just place it in the chimney outside!

Gift cards are also appreciated. The Center for People in Need recommends gift cards ranging in $10, $15 or $20 increments for hard-to-shop-for teens ages 13-18.

Here are some suggestions for where to get a gift card:

 

  • Experiences, like local bowling alleys, Marcus Theaters, Prehistoric Putt, Round 1, etc.
  • Teen-friendly stores, like GameStop, Plato’s Closet, Claire’s, Play-It-Again Sports, etc.
  • Fast food restaurants, like Runza, McDonald’s, Amigo’s, Valentino’s, Scooter’s, Honest Abe’s, Chipotle, etc.
  • Value stores, like Walmart, Dollar Tree, the Dollar Store, etc.

On Nov. 7, 15, and 18, 10/11 staff will be outside collecting the generous donations.

Help fill the 10/11 lobby and keep the holidays bright for children in our community. Then visit the Center for People in Need for a special holiday toy distribution in December!
