winter duck

Toys for Tots season is here! Please consider donating a new, unwrapped toy or hard cover children’s picture book any time between Saturdays, December 3 and 17 for distribution by Chicagoland US Marine’s this holiday season.  You may bring donations to any of our story times this month or to the Chicago Cultural Mile Second Friday event on December 9 in the Fine Arts Building. There are also collection boxes at William Harris Lee & Co. in the Fine Arts Building in Chicago’s South Loop and in downtown Wilmette.

We encourage you to shop at a local small business – maybe one of our venue partners such as Timeless Toys in Lincoln Square or CityLit Books in Logan Square.

If you have a bulk donation we can arrange a pick up.  Please contact us at before December 17.

Help us break our record of 97 gifts this year!

The Lucky Trikes perform 3 or 4 Saturdays a month for FREE at venues in Logan Square, Wicker Park, South Loop, and Wilmette.

We also appear at a variety of pubic festivals and can be hired to read and play at your private or school event.  We are happy to work with parents, educators and other cultural partners to create a themed or event specific program and extension activities.
