FREDERICK, MD – The Frederick Keys are partnering with the Toys for Tots Program again in 2023. Starting on November 6, the Keys will be collecting new and unwrapped toys which will then be handed out to less fortunate children on Christmas Day. This year’s Toys for Tots Drive runs through Saturday, December 9.
“Every child deserves to experience the magic of Christmas and that’s why we are excited to continue our partnership with Toys for Tots,” said Frederick Keys Director of Marketing Branden McGee. “Last year’s support from our fans and community members was overwhelming and we look forward to another impactful toy drive this year.”
One of Frederick County’s top donation destinations, Nymeo Field will be open for drop off from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. To drop of a toy(s), fans should visit the main office (adjacent to the main stadium gates). Anyone who makes a contribution will receive a Keys hat and a pair of tickets to a game in 2024. Prize packs are awarded one per person.
Fans will also be able to bring toys to the Keys Holiday Event on Sunday, December 9. This event will include a chance to meet Keyote, Holiday Themed Games and much more. Further details about this event will be announced at a later date.
In 2022, 15,000 toys were distributed to children across Frederick County, supporting over 2,500 children. Toys for Tots began in 1947, while there are more than 150 Marine reserve sites as well as more than 800 local Toys for Tots programs across the country.
