Just some of the many bikes donated last year!

The KGW Great Toy Drive, a collection event for more than 30 years, takes place now through December 17th. The campaign collects new, unwrapped toys for less fortunate families in Oregon and SW Washington. All donated toys will be distributed with the help of 120 local nonprofit organizations and hundreds of dedicated volunteers.

The KGW Great Toy Drive has hundreds of drop-off locations throughout the region. Toys can be donated at the main KGW studios located at 1501 SW Jefferson Street in downtown Portland, Regence offices, Wells Fargo locations, local Toyota Dealerships and nearly 300 other participating partner locations. For a complete list of locations, please visit KGW.com/toy.

Portland Pedal Power will work with offices who want to be drop-off locations. We will be delivering and carting as many toys to KGW as we can!

2016 donated toy delivery in action

“The KGW Great Toy Drive is an event that truly brings out the best in our community. Every year we’re humbled by the outpouring of giving from the public,” said DJ Wilson, president and general manager of the KGW Media Group.  “We’re especially grateful to Regence, Wells Fargo and the local Toyota Dealers, who continue to join with us to help needy families bring joy to their children on Christmas morning.”

Due to the generosity of the public and the commitments from many local area businesses to collect toys on behalf of the KGW Great Toy Drive, more children will enjoy a happier holiday season.
