From a press release: Saint Louis Closet Co. and STL Bucketlist have announced plans to collect toys for Toys for Tots Bridgeton, MO, through their joint giveback and marketing efforts.

This is the 15th year that Saint Louis Closet Co. has been an official toy drop off site.

The Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new unwrapped toys and distributes those to less fortunate children at Christmas, providing a tangible sign of hope.
Over 97% of funds and toys collected through this collaboration will provide toys, books, and other gifts to economically disadvantaged children in the St. Louis region. Less than 3% will be spent on fundraising and overhead. The nonprofit hopes these efforts assist children in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.

Founded in 1947 in California, Toys for Tots expanded in 1996 to cover all 50 states to conduct toy collection and distribution campaigns in their communities. Toys for Tots Bridgeton, MO, distributed 126,628 toys and supported 117,367 children in 2022. For more information about Toys for Tots Bridgton, MO, please visit Bridgeton MO Toys for Tots.

Last year Saint Louis Closet Co. donated more than 1,000 toys to the program. Saint Louis Closet Co.is located at 2626 S. Big Bend Blvd., Maplewood, Mo 63143.
