PLAINFIELD – The holiday season is among us, and State Senator Meg Loughran Cappel is collecting toys for underprivileged children across Will County.


“Many of us take for granted our ability to give and receive gifts during the holidays – but the reality is, hundreds of children in our community go without them each year,” said Senator Loughran Cappel (D-Shorewood). “This season, let’s not just think about our own families, but the families around us.”

Loughran Cappel’s office – located at 2009 Illinois Route 59 in Plainfield – will serve as a Toys for Tots drop-off location now through Dec. 16. Residents are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys for kids of all ages. The toys will be gifted to children in need throughout the holiday months.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute toys as Christmas gifts to children in the community.
