Santa D’s Toy Challenge on the Bridge

For the 24th year, 96.1 SOX is excited to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. For the 7th year, Santa D returns to the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge for the Toy Challenge on the bridge sponsored by UPMC. Our goal is 9,500 new, unwrapped toy and stocking stuffer donations to help make sure EVERY child in the Susquehanna Valley has a toy under the tree on Christmas morning.


From 6am on Monday, December 6th thru 6pm on Friday, December 10th, Santa D and his elves will be collecting donations for the Toys for Tots programs in Lancaster and York Counties. Donations will be accepted 24/hours a day on the Columbia side of the Route 462 Bridge.

Toys must be new and unwrapped. The high demand every year is for toys/gifts for those in the pre-teen age bracket (ages 9 to 12 both boys and girls) as well as infant to 2 years old, but donations for any age up to 12 years old, is appreciated. Some ideas for the older kids include items like sports gear, electronics, arts and crafts/hobby kits, science kits, musical instruments, backpacks, girls make-up kits and starter beauty products, etc.

Thank you in advance for your supporting Santa D and our mission to collect 9,500 toys and stocking stuffers this year.



A special thank you to our partners that support Santa D on the Bridge:
