Holiday Toy Drive

Big Hearts Holiday Toy Drive

The holidays are synonymous with toys. It’s a joyous time for most, but for many local struggling families, it’s a time of stress and anxiety. Parents barely getting by still want their children to experience the joy and excitement of receiving the toys on Christmas morning. Thank you for partnering with Big Hearts of Fox Valley to help these local D303 families.

Collection Drive Dates: This year’s toy drive will run October 16th-November 9th.

What will Big Hearts do with the toys you collect?

• Through our Christmas Sponsorship program, we ask our shoppers to spend at least $75.00 on each child they “adopt” for Christmas. When a child needs clothing and shoes, that amount is quickly reached. We can fill these kids bags with toys when the shopper has to spend so much money on items that the child really needs. When we have over 500 kids, these extra items really put a smile on these little ones’ faces Christmas morning!

• Throughout the school year, we use these items. When a child has a birthday, or a foster family is taking in kids that have nothing but the clothes on their back, these items go a long way in making kids happy.
