Care for Real Holiday Toy Drive
Toys should be new and unwrapped to allow parents to choose the most appropriate gifts for the child.

Are you not sure what to buy?  Here are suggestions of the most needed items:

FOR CHILDREN:  dolls, cars, backpacks, legos, puzzles, paint sets, anything hobby, craft and arts related.

While the little ones are so much fun to buy toys for – it’s the teens and tweens that we are seeking donations as they are often forgotten about.

FOR TEENS AND TWEENS: Gift cards and gift certificates (Target, Best Buy and Amazon are the most treasured), backpacks, movie passes, tickets to events (theater, sports, concerts).

STOCKING STUFFERS:  gloves, mittens, caps and hats, scarves and personal care items (shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, body wash, soap, etc.).

The Andersonville Toy Drive for Care For Real is generously sponsored by the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, Toys Et Cetera, and Edgeville Buzz.
