DONATE: The BIG 10TV Toy Drive


Every child deserves a toy for Christmas. But, unfortunately, not every family can provide that Christmas Cheer.

That’s why WBNS-10TV teamed up with the Salvation Army of Central Ohio, Safe Harbor Retirement Group, City Barbecue, the Columbus Blue Jackets and Sunny 95 for the Big 10TV Toy Drive.

The Big 10TV Toy Drive supports the Salvation Army’s Christmas Cheer program, a true holiday experience for families that may need a little help this time of year.

The toy drive gives that program a big boost by offering viewers a chance to provide the toys the Salvation Army will give away.


For a couple of weeks leading up to our one-day drive, you can drop off new, unwrapped toys at eight City Barbecue locations, the Chiller ice rinks, and Blue Line stores. Columbus Blue Jackets fans can donate at the home game on Friday, December 1. The Salvation Army will have a truck outside Nationwide Arena.

Or drive by the 10TV studios at 770 Twin Rivers Drive from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 14, when 10TV anchors and personalities will be on hand to collect toys. Some lucky donors could drive off with lovely parting gifts from Easton, like gift cards from American Girl, Cooper’s Hawk, Ocean Club and more.

So help make Christmas merry this year by donating a new, unwrapped toy to the Big 10TV Toy Drive. If you can’t join us on December 14, you can drop off toys at these locations:
