STUFFED ANIMALS – Because many of the social service agencies we work with do not request stuffed animals, and due to the difficulty in determining if a stuffed animal is in fact a new toy, we prefer not to receive stuffed animals. However, we don’t like to turn down fluffy donations. Please bag your stuffed animal in a clear plastic bag before donating.
FOOD, CLOTHING, REALISTIC LOOKING WEAPONS – If donated, such items will not be distributed.
GIFT CARDS –The acceptance of gift cards as donations is appreciated but should be avoided. However, in the event they are presented, they are used by the coordinator to purchase toys. Toys for Tots campaigns are not authorized to distribute these as gifts and are mandated to turn them into toys before distribution.
