The KIRO 7 studios are located at 2807 Third Avenue (Third and Broad), Seattle, 98121.  Money can also be donated.

All donations will be distributed to deserving children and families across Western Washington this holiday season. The biggest needs are for babies and girls and boys ages 9-13. For pre-teens/teens, suggested items include sporting equipment/bags/balls; books, backpacks, cosmetics, purses, watch/wallet gift sets, bath gift sets, board games, radio control cars/trucks, hand-held electronics, skateboards/helmets, curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers.

Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food.  If donated, such items will NOT be distributed.

KIRO 7 is also coordinating with Toys for Tots organizations in surrounding counties to support drive efforts and make a positive impact for those in need across Western Washington.
