Toy Drive Guidelines

Every year DePelchin Children's Center is fortunate to have the community support our annual Holiday Project by hosting toy drives and collecting needed items for the children and families we serve. Please click here to find a list of the children's most-needed and most wished-for items.

We ask that you only bring items that meet the criteria below:

  1. All items must be new and unwrapped.
  2. We can only accept non-violent toys. This means we cannot accept any guns, bow and arrows, video games rated Teen or above, movies rated above PG13, or anything that encourages violent behavior.
  3. The children we serve are ages 0-17, with the majority of our children over the age of five. With this in mind, we especially appreciate games, toys, and clothes for children above the age of five.

Below you will find with the DePelchin Children's Center logo, Holiday Project logo, and toy drive flyer. Please feel free to use these items to promote your toy drive. We kindly ask that you adhere to these guidelines when using the DePelchin logo.
