DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - KWQC-TV6 held its annual Toys for Tots donation drive Friday.

The U.S. Marine Corps and volunteers were on hand from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. to collect new, unwrapped toys and monetary donations.

In 2020, 29,318 toys were distributed and 7,424 children were supported, according to the Marine Corps website.

The Quad Cities Bike Club through its “Bikes for Tykes” program, dropped off more than 100 bicycles ranging in all sizes from tricycles to 26 inches.

That’s more than double last year’s number of donated bicycles and more than seven times more than in 2019.
