    Default Great lakes Jeep Thing toys for tots (chicago)

    Great Lakes Jeep Thing 5th annual Toys for Tots all 4x4 parade!
    Dec. 14th
    Start time 10am
    Start location 31st Street beach parking lot off Lake Shore Drive (Chicago)
    End location Foster and Kilbourn (Irene C. hernandez picnic grove)

    Our club is in It's 5th year helping the USMC raise toys for the less fortunate here in Chicago. Every year 4x4 enthusiasts from all around come out to help with their vehicles loaded to the top with donations from friends, family, and co-workers. Last year we had participants from 4 different states! 60 plus heavily decorated vehicles tooled down Lake Shore drive loaded up with toys. We were filmed and followed by channel 5, and channel 2 news. The second leg of the parade went west escorted by Chicago's finest on Foster to meet up with the Marines at the tail end for toy drop off. Our sign up/registration form is now online at, and this event is open to ANYONE with a four wheel drive vehicle willing to donate. (Must have at least one new toy)

    We are hoping to repeat the news coverage we got last year, and possibly add some radio and newspapers also. The more coverage we get, the more participants and donations we can raise. Please take a moment and help us out. We need the word out as much as possible about this...and good news is nice to have on TV once in a while. The club president Brandon Turner can be reached at

    More information can be had at our website We have a toys for tots discussion forum, and plenty of pictures along with a writeup from last year. We also have an edited video of last year on a CDrom. Thank you for your time and merry Christmas!
    Every child deserves at least one new toy for Christmas.
