Host a Collecton Drive

Gather your friends and your fellow co-workers and hold a drive.  Hosting a drive is a great way to engage your employees and friends to bring joy to a child during the holiday season.  We’re collecting toys, games, books, gloves, hats, and outerwear.  Click on the link above for full details on how to hold a successful drive and for helpful materials to spread the word!

Our collection deadline is Friday, December 15.
