The annual Toys for Tots event is aiming to help 20,000 Idaho children this Christmas season.

To help, please drop off a new, unwrapped toy into bins at any Treasure Valley Albertsons location. Please donate early so that the presents will be distributed in time. The goal is to help the estimated 18 to 20,000 Idaho kids  (Each child receives a large toy, a stocking stuffer and a book).

Examples of toys available at Albertsons are:

  • Jumbo 6 foot tall stuffed bears
  • Huffy bikes
  • North Pole Express toy trains
  • Remote control cars and trucks
  • Lots of plush toys
  • Military vehicle play sets

KIVI is partnering with the U.S. Marines and sponsors from Albertsons, Blue Cross of Idaho and Southern Idaho Toyota Dealers.
