Christmas Toy Drive

Embrace the holiday spirit through our Christmas Elf Toy Drive.

Join us in spreading joy and making a difference in the lives of children by participating in our unopened toy drive. Every child deserves to experience the excitement of receiving a new toy at Christmas time, and you can help make that happen.

By donating unopened toys, you’ll provide happiness and a sense of normalcy to children facing challenging circumstances. Whether it’s a stuffed animal, a board game, a barbie, or a superhero action figure, your generous contribution will bring smiles and create lasting memories.

Let’s come together as a community and give the gift of joy to those who need it most. Together, we can make a positive impact and brighten the lives of kids.

We will work with local shop with a cop and local agencies to find families for our toy giveaway. We then set up a separate event for kids to get photos with Santa Clause and be given their toy from Santa himself.
