• How to give to KIRO 7 Cares Toy Drive, benefiting Toys for Tots on Dec. 8


    UPDATE: You helped us fill five truckloads in the KIRO 7 Cares Toy Drive! Thank you -- that benefited thousands of children and families in the Northwest. 

    ORIGINAL TEXT: Join KIRO 7 and Albert Lee Appliance to help create special memories for children in our community this Holiday season. Donate a new, unwrapped toy to the KIRO 7 CARES Toy Drive, benefiting Toys for Tots, at any one of the five Albert Lee Appliance locations beginning November 20th.

    KIRO 7 also hosted an event Friday, December 8th, from 6am to 6pm as we wrapped up the KIRO 7 Cares Toy Drive with a day filled with special guests and Holiday activities.  KIRO 7 Anchors and Reporters, US Marine Corps representatives, local team mascots, carolers, Santa and more KIRO 7 Cares partners were on hand throughout the day as we collect new, unwrapped toys for those in need.

    If you missed the event but want to donate to Toys for Tots, visit this link.
