- Host a Toy Drive
If you have a group, church, or organization that can help provide toys or other supplies, we will deliver a pack of tickets to you to hand out to anyone interested in participating. These tickets will show a specific age group and have gift ideas, or supplies we need to aid in wrapping all of these gifts!
Additionally, Gift Donation Stations will be in place throughout downtown Delaware thanks to the efforts of our friends at Main Street Delaware. Please spread the word that new, unwrapped toys can be dropped off anytime starting mid-October. You can find the list of these locations at www.mainstreetdelaware.com.
Let’s work together to ensure that all 150 families who come this year will be able to make Christmas such a magical time for their children!
