Toys for the Holidays

Toys for the Holidays is Volunteers of America’s holiday gift drive for children. Your gifts brighten the holidays for children in homeless and domestic violence shelters, pre-k schools for kids with developmental delays, and group homes for at-risk youth. In most years, we can even distribute toys to smaller shelter and assistance programs outside our organization with severely limited resources.

How to Participate in Toys for the Holidays:
Hold a drive at your office or social group. Collect new, unwrapped gifts for children of all ages up to 17. In choosing toys to contribute, we encourage you to make quality the priority over quantity, in the hope that each child can receive one or two presents that are really special. We can provide posters to help you promote your efforts and sample text for requesting help. And if you want to help, but don't have time to shop or organize a drive....

Donate here and your contribution will help bring a smile to a child's face during the holidays.

Or, point and click to give the perfect gift to one of our teens! Visit our Amazon Wishlist to easily shop for gift cards they'll love.

We are always grateful for gifts of cash as it allows us the flexibility to use it where it is most needed. Alternatively, feel free to give us a call, let us know how you would like to direct your gift and we can take your credit card over the phone and ensure it will be used to brighten the holidays of someone in need.​
