Metra joins with Marines for the annual Toys for Tots drive

For the seventh consecutive year, Metra and the U.S. Marine Corps will spread holiday cheer by hosting a Toys for Tots drive at all downtown Chicago Metra stations on Tuesday, Dec. 11.

Metra hopes to transform its trains into Santa’s sleds, delivering toys from riders to Millennium, Van Buren Street, LaSalle Street, Chicago Union Station and the Ogilvie Transportation Center.

If you wish to participate in this annual event and help ensure that children across Chicagoland have a joyous holiday, please bring a new, unwrapped toy and drop it off on your way to work or on your way home at any of our downtown stations. Marines and Metra employees will collect toys from 6 to 9 a.m. during the morning rush and from 3 to 6 p.m. during the evening rush period on Tuesday, Dec. 11.
