AKRON, Ohio — Goodyear and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve will host the 10th annual Toys for Tots drive at its Wingfoot Lake blimp base and select Goodyear Auto Service Centers from Dec. 1-11.

The public can get a free, up-close look at the Goodyear blimp inside the Wingfoot Lake base from 2 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 11, 12 and 13 as part of the toy drive.

All donors are expected to follow Goodyear’s COVID-19 protocols, including wearing a mask while on property, social distancing guidelines and having toys in the trunk of your vehicle.

Toys can also be shipped to Goodyear’s hangars through Dec. 8 for contact-less donation. Toys being donated must be in the original packaging to be accepted.

“So much has changed this year in our communities, and it’s critical that we continue to find ways to support them through safe and unique experiences like this,” said Laura Duda, Goodyear’s senior vice president and chief communications officer. “Through our Toys for Tots support over the past decade, we have expanded on our strong relationship with the U.S. Marine Corps, and we are pleased to continue delivering much-needed donations of toys to the children who need them most, especially right now."
