Firetruck O'Toys collects gifts for sick children in St. Louis-area hospitals. The idea was inspired by MacKenzie Scott, a Belleville teen who was diagnosed at age 4 with Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, a degenerative bone disease of the hip.
How to help
Donate new, unwrapped toys by Dec. 13 at several locations in St. Louis and the metro-east, including the Dairy Queens in Freeburg, Lebanon, Belleville and O'Fallon. Or you can eat pizza: Use online code TOYS to order a Domino's Fire Truck Special (a large 4-topping or specialty pizza for $12.99) and the pizzeria will donate $1 on your behalf.
