BRING YOUR TOYS FOR TOTS

ON YOUR COMMUTE DEC. 5 - 7

 

BALTIMORE, MD – Join the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police, MDTA staff and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves in the national Toys for Tots campaign at the Baltimore harbor crossings.  Since 1990, MDTA employees have collected more than 156,000 toys from toll facility and Port of Baltimore customers.

Wednesday, Dec. 5 – Friday, Dec. 7, from 6 - 9 a.m. and 3 - 5 p.m., employees will collect new, unwrapped toys at the Baltimore Harbor and Fort McHenry tunnels (I-895, I-95) and the Francis Scott Key Bridge (I-695) in Baltimore, and also at the Bay Bridge (US 50/301), the Gov. Harry W. Nice Memorial/Senator Thomas “Mac” Middleton Bridge (US 301), the Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge (US 40), the Intercounty Connector (MD 200) and the Dundalk Marine Terminal. 

“We are proud to participate in this effort that will benefit those in need in the communities that we serve,” said MDTA Police Chief Jerry Jones.  “The tradition of collecting toys for children during the holiday season is something we look forward to each year.”

Customers who wish to donate toys should use the far-right toll lane and follow directions from Santa, uniformed MDTA Police officers or MDTA staff.  (Note: This includes E-ZPass customers who wish to drop off toys.)  The MDTA Police remind drivers to keep safety in mind as they approach toy drop-off sites.  Toys may be dropped off during scheduled times only.  Toll collectors are unable to accept donations in the toll lanes

Toys collected at MDTA facilities will be given to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves and to local charities for distribution.  For more information on the MDTA’s collection efforts, visit mdta.maryland.gov. For more on the Toys for Tots program, visit toysfortots.org.
