Hold a Toy Drive

Each holiday season, we provide new toys to children who would otherwise have nothing under the tree Christmas morning. We brighten the holidays for over 10,000 children in Central Ohio each year.  We depend on the generosity of this community to donate the thousands of toys needed to help children in this community. To hold a toy drive, please follow these easy steps:


Step 1

Decide if you want a Toy List of needed toys or Angel Tree tags to hang on a Christmas tree in your office, church, or place of business. Each Angel Tree tag has the name of a child and a specific toy listed.

Step 2

Distribute gift list or hang Angel Tree tags on a tree for all those interested in purchasing toys. Collect NEW, UNWRAPPED toys any time before December 15, 2017.

Step 3

Once collection is over, determine which drop off option is best for you. Toys can be dropped off using one of the following methods:

  • Drop off during the Big 10TV Toy Drive, 770 Twin Rivers Drive, December 14 between 7am and 7pm.
  • Bring to 966 E. Main Street Monday – Friday 9am to 4pm between December 7 and December 15
  • Bring to Lausche Building at the Ohio State Fairgrounds Friday, December 15 between 9am and 3pm or on Monday, December 18 between 9am and noon.
