KOAM-TV, the Salvation Army and the U.S. Army have organized one of the area's largest toy drives to benefit underprivileged children in Southeast Kansas, Southwest Missouri, and Northeast Oklahoma.

Request Toys

All toys will be given to The Salvation Army and similar public service organizations to distribute to families who have registered for holiday assistance.  To register with the organization distributing to your county CLICK HERE.

Donate Toys

Any new toy or gift is accepted.  Toys may be dropped off at the KOAM studios in Pittsburg or Joplin or our partner locations. CLICK HERE to view a list of those partners.

Used or soiled toys will not be used for the Toybox Campaign but may be donated separately to an agency. Due to allergens, donations of used toys and/or stuffed animals are discouraged.

There is always a great need for gifts for teenagers like current video games, mp3 players, personal compact disc players, make-up, etc.

The deadline to drop off toys at KOAM is Friday, December 19th.

Donate Money

Cash donations are also accepted and will be used to purchase new toys for Toybox.  Financial contributions may be made through checks, cash, credit card, or Electronic Funds Transfer (debit card). A charitable receipt may be requested and will be provided by The Salvation Army or other 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
