Allen Event Center in partnership with FOX 4 News and the Marine Corps League of Collin County will once again hold a Toys for Tots donation drive from 5-10 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6 outside of the arena.
During the event, the public is invited to drop off new, unwrapped toys and monetary donations by the entrance of Allen Event Center. Members of the Marine Corps League and Allen High School’s Junior ROTC program will be on-site to collect the donations.
Allen Event Center is also partnering again with the Allen Economic Development Corporation, Allen Fairview Chamber of Commerce, Allen Independent School District, Allen Fire Department and the City of Allen to make this year’s drive another huge success. The organizations will have collection locations throughout Allen in November where toys can be dropped off early. Information about the collection locations can be found on AllenEventCenter.com.
FOX 4 News will be at Allen Event Center throughout the evening, doing live broadcasts with updates about the donation drive. Allen Event Center has been chosen as a live broadcast and drop-off location for Toys for Tots since 2010, having collected nearly 80,000 toys over eight years.
