Toys for Tots Appearance Request

KARE 11 is excited to partner with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve on Toys for Tots again this year. The generous support of our community makes the Twin Cities Toys for Tots program one of the largest in the country. In 2012 the Twin Cities Toys for Tots program had the sixth highest distribution in the nation and was named the National Marine Campaign of the year. Thank you for continuing to make the holidays brighter for thousands of children in our area.

The 2013 collection will kick off on Friday, December 6 and wrap up on Saturday, December 21. If you are interested in appearing on a KARE 11 newscast to make your donation, please take a few minutes to complete the following form.

Each year we receive requests from hundreds of generous groups, and we do our best to accommodate as many groups as we can. Because the number of requests is so high, we aren’t able to schedule every group. Therefore, completing this form does not serve as your confirmation; you will receive an e-mail confirmation within the next two weeks letting you know if we were able to schedule your group and if so, the exact date and time of your appearance.
