Girl Scouts of Oregon and SW Washington is excited to participate in the 2015 FOX 12 Les Schwab Tire Centers Toy Drive!

Donate new, unwrapped toys to our Portland Service Center now through December 9, 2015 to help bring joy to thousands of local kids and teens. Toys will benefit more than 100 non-profit organizations throughout Oregon and SW Washington.

The Girl Scout troop that donates the most toys via our Portland Service Center drop-off location will have the opportunity to represent GSOSW live on FOX 12 on Friday, December 11, 2015! The winning troop will present all toys collected by Girl Scouts.

TO PARTICIPATE:

  1. Drop off new, unwrapped toys to our Portland Service Center at 9620 SW Barbur Blvd., Portland, Oregon 97219 by December 9, 2015. See drop-off hours and a list of toy suggestions below.
  2. When dropping off toys, be sure to fill out a drop-off form in order for your donation to be counted toward your troop’s total. Toys donated without a donation form or toys donated at other drop-off locations cannot be counted toward your troop’s total.

A troop will be selected to represent Girl Scouts based on total donations received at the Portland Service Center as of 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 9. The winning troop must be available to present toys during the live broadcast on Friday, December 11. If the winning troop is unavailable, the second place troop will be chosen as an alternate, and so on until an available troop can be identified.
