Toys For Tots Drop Off Location 

Q: What ages are supported by Toys for Tots?
Most campaign sites are able to assist children up to age 12, but in many local communities, local support is such that the age limit may be extended to 14-16.
Q: Is there a list of toys available to guide me with my donation?
Toys for Tots does not publish a list of appropriate toys to donate.  If such a list were created, most would follow it, resulting in a limited selection of items to distribute in each community.  We would rather our donors consider what might be an appropriate gift for their own child/relative, purchase the item, and donate to Toys for Tots.
Q: Pre-teen/teens are groups for which shopping is especially difficult.  Do you have any ideas?
The Foundation does purchase supplemental toys/gifts for our campaign sites and focuses on these age groups.  In the past, items purchased for these groups have included, but are not limited to:  sporting equipment/bags/balls; books, backpacks, cosmetics, purses, watch/wallet gift sets, bath gift sets, board games, radio control cars/trucks, hand-held electronics, skateboards/helmets, curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers.

Q: Are there toys/gifts that are not accepted/distributed?
Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food.  If donated, such items will NOT be distributed.

Q: How do I find my local Toys for Tots Drop Off Location?
Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is an official Drop Off Location and is located at 228 S College Road Wilmington, North Carolina 28403
Did you know that Toys for Tots is a top rated charity?
97% of your donation goes to our mission of providing toys, books and other gifts to less fortunate children. The 3% spent on support principally covers fundraising expenses – not one donated dollar goes to pay for salaries or any other manpower costs.

The Cape Fear Marine Corps League has been leading the United States Marine Corps Toys For Tots campaign since 2008. Last year they placed nearly 250 drop off boxes and collected 19,078 toys which were distributed to 5,362 needy children in the greater New Hanover County area. Help the Detachment with your donations of new, unwrapped toys or financial assistance and make the holidays special for our area children. They can be reached at
