Verification/Documentation for Distribution Day

This year we will, again, be very strictly enforcing the requirement that parents present an ORIGINAL (not photocopy) birth certificate or a CURRENT YEAR school photo identification for each child, as well as an identification card for the parent (and if the identification card does not have a Buffalo or Montrose address, a current utility bill with a Buffalo or Montrose address).  Toys will not be provided if this information is not brought with them on registration day.


Cash donations are very much appreciated and may be made via this website or by mailing a check to Buffalo Rotary Toys for Tots, P.O. Box 501, Buffalo, MN 55313. Any donations that you make through this local Rotary Club of Buffalo Toys For Tots website will stay local and will be used to purchase a toy for a child in Buffalo or Montrose.

Toy donations (new and unwrapped) may be made at any of the drop boxes located throughout the Buffalo and Montrose community (available approximately mid-November – mid-December).  For a list of locations, please see the link on this website.
