CRYSTAL LAKE – The Cottage will be hosting a Toys for Tots drive from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Residents can bring in unwrapped toys to the restaurant on 6 E. Crystal Lake Ave. in Crystal Lake and receive free food during halftime of the Chicago Bears game. All toys collected will be distributed by the McHenry County Detachment Marine Corps League as part of the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots national campaign.

This will be the seventh year The Cottage has hosted the fundraiser, which is co-sponsored by the Crystal Lake Lions Club. Last year, roughly $6,000 worth of toys and bicycles were collected at the event and distributed to children in need.
