Local Toy Drives

There have been so many great prices on toys this year!  It gives us deal seekers a wonderful opportunity to share the fruits of our coupon clipping labors with those in need.  I hate to think of any kids not getting to enjoy the holidays, so I decided to list some local toy donation sites and opportunities!

Seattle Seahawks Charity Toy Drive:  Several Seattle professional athletes have teamed with Westfield Southcenter, Fed Ex Office and Octagon Football to host the 2009 Seattle Seahawks Players Toy Drive benefiting Seattle Children’s Hospital.  It is being held on December 14th from 6pm to 8pm at the Westfield Southcenter Mall.

The 4th Annual Great Toy Drive is being held through December 13th and is sponsored by KING 5 News, Regence Blue Shield of Washington, McLendon's Harware and the Boys and Girls Club.  For more information go here

Quatlity Inn & Suites Seattle Center is hosting a toy drive December 3rd and 10th.  All toys are given to Toys for Tots and the Boys and Girls Club.  You get a free Santa photo when you donate.  More information is available here.

Sleep Country's Secret Santa Toy Drive is going on now until December 13th also.  This toy drive is benefiting local foster children.  For more information on this toy drive go here.

US Army Toy Drive has multiple drop off locations in  the Puget Sound Region that you can find here.  This toy drive is also benefiting Children's Hospital.

I'm sure this is just a drop in the bucket of donation opportunities out there.  I know many local churches and community centers are collecting toys as well.  Secret  also has a directory that you can enter your zip code into to find a toy drive near you.
