Local 10’s Big Bus Toy Express is back for the fourth consecutive year.

The bus will make its way across South Florida, collecting new, unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots program.

‘Big Bus Toy Express’ returns to South Florida on Dec. 8


This year, Local 10 News hopes to make the holiday season bigger and brighter for children in need.  

U.S. Marines are also always proud to serve, and when it comes to the holidays, they go the extra mile to make sure no child goes without a gift.

“Every toy, any toy is very helpful. It’s very appreciated,” U.S. Marine Sgt. Renzo Ordinola said.

For more than a century, the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program has been in active duty.

Last year, people who are viewers of Local 10 news donated 15,000 new toys — enough to fill our double-decker bus and a 27-foot truck. But donations this year are coming in slow, especially for toddlers and teens.  

“Right now, we actually need for 0 to 5, for boys and girls,” Ordinola said.

With the public’s help, we can pick up the pace and make this holiday season a very merry one for all boys and girls.


The following locations are part of our Big Bus Toy Express schedule. Make a note of the times and come out to make a difference.
