Toys for Tots of Spokane helping families with Christmas presents through toy pick-up

SPOKANE, Wash. — For families that may be struggling to buy Christmas presents this year, Toys for Tots of Spokane wants to help.

There’s still time for families to sign up for the toy pick-up.

Nearly 1,000 orders have already been made ready for families to pick up at the Toys for Tots warehouse — which is actually at the closed White Elephant store in Spokane Valley this year.

You can go on the Toys for Tots of Spokane website right now to see if you qualify for an order of toys for your kids.

You can also sign up to be a volunteer.

If you qualify for toys, you should get a confirmation email followed by an approval.

Then, within a few days of receiving your approval email, you will get an email with your order number.

This email will also contain instructions for pick-up.

Sign up before Monday, Dec. 14 to make sure your kids have something under the tree this year!

Because of the pandemic, the need is much greater this year and more toy donations are needed.

Donate toys at various businesses, fire stations and grocery stores in the Spokane area or at the warehouse at 12614 E Sprague Ave. Donation hours are from 9-5 on Mondays through Fridays and from 9-3 on Saturdays.

University High School and Central Valley High School are also holding a toy drive on Saturday, Dec. 5 from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
