The Regional Transportation Authority , KGUN 9 On Your Side, and Arby's want to thank you for helping to "Fill the Streetcar" with toys for the Miracle on 31st Street charity Christmas celebration to benefit children who live in some of Tucson's most disadvantaged neighborhoods.
Ramon's Miracle on 31st Street is a legendary grassroots charity that provides holiday kindness to economically disadvantaged children in Tucson.
2019 will mark the 49h year, that this open-door Christmas celebration is attended by thousands of children and their families.
After Friday, December 6th, if you would like to make a donation to the Miracle on 31st Street charity Christmas celebration, you can drop off new unwrapped toys at KGUN's studios , or with Ramon Gonzalez at 2019 W Ajo Way Tucson AZ 85713 - or by calling Ramon at (520) 971-8271.
More drop off locations:
- El Con Mall Theater, 3601 East Broadway Boulevard on December 10 at 6 p.m.

- Cashbox Jewelry, 2014 South Craycroft Road on December the 14 from 12 p.m. until 2 p.m.
This year, more than 15,000 children are expected to attend the celebration. We invite you to join together with others in our community to ensure that each of the children leaves with a new toy in hand. We will bring all of the toys that are donated at Arby's locations in Tucson to the "Fill the Streetcar" event in downtown Tucson on December 6th to help us reach this goal.
FILL THE STREET CAR!
On Friday, Dec. 6, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., bring your new, unwrapped toys to the Sun Link streetcar that will be stationed just west of 4th Avenue on 8th Street in downtown Tucson. Volunteers from the RTA and KGUN 9 On Your Side will be there to greet you and load your toys onto the streetcar. You can opt to do a curbside drop-off or join us at the location for live local entertainment.
Fill the streetcar has collected over 3,000 toys so far.
