Drop off toys for Toy Express at Village Hall, Station 81

Toy Express Parade

Toy Express delivers smiles to children in our community every year.

The non-profit aims to brighten the lives of children in Chicago's western suburbs who may otherwise not receive any gifts during the holidays. Since 1990, Toy Express has collected and distributed clothes and toys to thousands of children.

New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off at Villa Park Village Hall (20 S. Ardmore Ave.) or Villa Park Fire Station 81 (1440 S. Ardmore Ave.). Toy Express will collect the toys and let parents pick a few gifts to wrap for their children.

Ever year, Toy Express kicks off the holiday season with a parade. This year, the parade held Nov. 22 began in Westmont and ended at the Toy Express storefront donated by the Chestnut Court Shopping Center in Darien. The Villa Park Fire Department participated along with several other area departments.
