Every child deserves a toy at Christmas. But, unfortunately, not every family can provide that Christmas Cheer.
That’s why WBNS-10TV is teaming up with the Salvation Army of Central Ohio, Safe Harbor Retirement Group, Danbury Senior Living, City Barbecue, and the Columbus Blue Jackets 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 central Ohio residents and local businesses a chance to provide the toys the Salvation Army will give away in its Christmas Cheer program in mid-December.
HOW TO DONATE
For the weeks leading up to our one-day collection, those who want to help can drop off new, unwrapped toys at nine City Barbecue locations, the OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rinks, Blue Line stores and Safe Harbor and Danbury Senior Living locations.
Or, drive by the 10TV studios at 770 Twin Rivers Drive from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 9, when our holiday elves will be on hand to collect toys.
Columbus Blue Jackets fans can drop off toys at the December 9th game at Nationwide Arena.
