Additional donation sites have been added to 13abc's "Hope for the Holidays" toy drive.  The complete list of locations is listed below.

The third annual toy drive continues through December 20.  The drive resulted in the donation of more than 18,000 new toys last year which were distributed throughout the Toledo region by the Salvation Army. 

Thousands of children enjoyed a happy holiday season in 2012 thanks to the generosity of the community.  This week, an anonymous donor brought eight new bicycles and helmets to 13abc to be donated before this year's drive even officially began. 

Sponsors for the Hope for the Holidays campaign include the 13abc, the Salvation Army, Hylant, and Vito's Pizza, Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer, Dave White Chevrolet and Acura and Jim White Toyota.

New toys will be accepted throughout the campaign at locations below.  Used toys cannot be accepted.  The Salvation Army is responsible for coordinating and distribution of the toys in December.

A special "drive through" bash will be held again this year on Friday, December 6th.  The drive through at 13abc studios on Dorr Street allows people to donate quickly and easily.  There will be special attractions and entertainment including Santa Claus during the "bash" which will be announced soon.  The bash begins at 5:00am and continues through 6:30pm and will also feature 13abc Action News anchors, meteorologists and reporters.
