About the Toy Drive
This year’s 2021 WGN Morning News Toy Drive will again be virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. Last year’s toy drive donated over 12,500 toys. This year’s toy drive will take place from 5-10am on Friday, December 10 and will benefit Christmas in the Wards and Off the Street Club (via grants from WGN-TV Family Charities, a McCormick Foundation Fund.)
The McCormick Foundation matches all donations to WGN-TV Family Charities at fifty cents on the dollar. With WGN-TV and the Foundation paying all campaign and administrative expenses, one hundred percent of all donations, plus the match is granted to qualified nonprofit organizations.
The McCormick Foundation does not make grants to programs that would financially benefit WGN-TV.
