Add Toys for Tots to your holiday shopping list

CARS of America is collecting toys for the Marine Toys 4 Tots Foundation through Dec. 10. Thanks to your generosity, we've already donated 6 wardrobe boxes full of toys. Can you help us get to 12?

With Thanksgiving behind us, the holiday shopping season is officially in full swing. And we'd like to encourage you to help us brighten the holidays for less fortunate children in our communities.

We're once again collecting toys for the Marine Toys 4 Tots Foundation, and thanks to your generosity, we've already donated SIX wardrobe boxes full of toys to this great cause. But let's not stop there. Can you help us get to 10 or 15?

The toy drive continues through December 10. And when you generously donate a new, unwrapped toy, you'll receive a free oil change (or credit good toward a future oil change).

To donate:

  • Bring a new toy valued at $20 or more to CARS of America at 1727 Chestnut Avenue in Glenview.
  • Leave the gift in the original packaging and unwrapped.
  • Place it in the toy collection box.
  • Enjoy your free oil change the same day or save the credit for your next oil change! (If you typically purchase our Select or Elite oil change packages, you'll receive $34.99 in credit toward your oil change service.)

Have any questions? Email us now.


(Please Note: The free oil change is limited to one per household. CARS reserves the right to turn away toys that do not meet the above criteria.)
