Let's Fill the Streetcar

December 12, 2018 -  A Sun Link streetcar vehicle can carry about 148 passengers. Imagine how many toys it can fit onboard! Let’s find out this Friday, Dec. 14. The Regional Transportation Authority is collecting new and unwrapped toys for children who live in the most economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in the Tucson metro area.

The toys will be collected in a parked streetcar on 8th Street just west of Fourth Avenue from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. The toys will go to the Miracle on 31st Street charity for children. Miracle on 31st Street hosts a holiday party for children every year. This is the 48th year of the event.

If you stop by between 4 p.m. and 5:30, you can enjoy the sounds of the Salpointe and Canyon del Oro high school choirs and the CDO pep band. If you can’t stay, volunteers will unload toys from your vehicle. You don’t even need to get out of the car.
