It's become an annual tradition - one that provides help to Northland kids in need.  The Superior Fire Department has kicked off their annual Toys For Tots program and they're asking for help from the general public.

The Toys For Tots program works like this:  the department collects donations of new, unwrapped toys at a variety of locations throughout Superior.  Later - closer to Christmas - the toys are distributed to kids in need in ways that will make the most difference.

Here are the drop off locations located throughout Superior:

  • Superior Fire Department Headquarters - on Tower Avenue
  • Salvation Army:  916 Hughitt Avenue
  • Choo Choo Bar and Grill
  • East End Hardware
  • Culvers
  • National Bank of Commerce - both Tower Avenue locations
  • Walgreens
  • YMCA
  • Northwood Technical College
  • Sears
  • Thatcher's Auto
  • Games Then and Now
  • Northwest Outlet
  • Artistic Florals by Leslie
  • Port City Collective
  • Sterling Silver Studio
  • Menards
  • Aces on 29th

In addition, the Toys For Tots program is featuring three different online options this year:

A Walmart link under the account 'SASuperior2021AngelTree':

An Amazon link for SFD Toy Drive 2021:

A Target link listed under Superior Fire Dept Toy Drive Douglas Co WI's Charity Registry:

There is also a sign up option that's being handled by the Salvation Army on their Facebook page.

In addition to donations of toys, you may also consider donating items for teenagers.  Monetary donations are also accepted and used to purchase gifts that the program is in need of to fulfill wish lists.
