Residents Can Donate Toys to Children in Need

Johns Creek’s annual 'Toys for Tots' campaign underway.

This Christmas season bring a smile of happiness to the face of a needy child by donating a toy or game to the City of Johns Creek’s 6th annual “Toys for Tots” campaign at one of five locations throughout the city. Donations will be accepted through Dec. 14 

"With the economy still struggling, many families are cutting back on their gifts," said Johns Creek Fire Marshal Chad McGiboney, who is spearheading the program for the city. "Johns Creek residents are generous, big-hearted people. We're hoping that people will step up and we’ll see more happy kids on Christmas Day. Just a single toy might help a child feel he or she isn’t forgotten."

Donated toys should be unwrapped, but still in their original packaging. McGiboney said typically most toys are appropriate for small children, and encouraged people to consider buying toys for youngsters 10 to 12 years old.

“Toys for Tots” donations can be dropped off at the following locations:

  • Fire Station #61: 10265 Medlock Bridge Parkway
  • Fire Station #62: 10925 Rogers Circle
  • Fire Station #63: 3165 Old Alabama Road
  • City Hall: 12000 Findley Road, Suite 400
  • Park Place: 3150 Old Alabama Road
