Toys for the Holidays

Toys for the Holidays

Toys for the Holidays is VOA-Greater New York's holiday gift drive for children. Your gifts brighten the holidays for children in homeless and domestic violence shelters, pre-K schools for students 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 Get Involved:

  • COLLECT. Hold a drive (at your office or virtually) to donate new, unwrapped gifts for children of all ages up to 17. Email to learn how you can get involved. 
  • DONATE. 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. 

  • FUNDRAISE. Support VOA-Greater New York this holiday season by fundraising as an organization or a team. Set up your fundraising team now.

In light of COVID-19, we are doing things differently this year. Reach out to learn how you can help – email

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.​
