Holiday Toy Collection Drive

Collecting new, unwrapped toys for children ages 0-18

October 18th through November 12th, 2021

During the holidays, Big Hearts of Fox Valley collects and distributes toys for D303 children. Last year, we were able to provide toys to 650 children from low-income families. Since 2014, we have been able to collect almost 10,000 dolls, trucks, books, board games, sports equipment, and gift certificates.

This toy drive is part of the Big Hearts of Fox Valley’s Annual Christmas Sponsorship Program, a charity drive designed to collect toys and other items from wish lists for area families in need of assistance during the holidays. All collected toys will be given to local families. Make a difference in someone’s life by donating a new unopened toy, it’s the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit. 

New for 2021! We have some exciting news! In addition to being able to drop off new toys in our collection boxes listed at the locations below, you can now shop from the comfort of your own home! You don’t have to drive anywhere, stand in long lines or do any gift wrapping – we’ll do all of that for you! You can participate in our VIRTUAL HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE and the toys will get shipped directly to us!
