FILL THE TRUCK for #VarietyToys4Tykes


For 2021, we're bringing back the truck! Last year we had to re-imagine Variety Toys4Tykes. To make sure that we are safe, our friends, and families are safe, and those donating are safe, we came up with a socially distanced solution to get toys to kids in need...FILL THE TRUCK!

Like last year, instead of inviting volunteers to help us sort toys that we collect via a gala event, we're going to be sending out a special truck that will pick up new, unwrapped, toys in a social distanced and safe manner. Outdoors, in open spaces, to as many locations as we can get to. We will be encouraging companies to collect toys and then we'll meet up with a spokesperson or small group from the company (big companies, small companies, any size company) to collect the toys for distribution. We want people to start thinking about this now, because we're a small group ourselves, and will need to organize and schedule pick ups wisely.

We'd love to have your help. Contact us today and we can arrange a Toy Barrel to be delivered to your space to help collect toys for children who aren't as lucky as us. Just make sure the toys are like new & unwrapped, and we'll make sure they get to deserving hands. Email, [email protected] or Call 415-781-3894.
