HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE
The Campbell Orthodontics team is excited to begin our 2019 Holiday Toy Drive with Toys for Tots and the Salvation Army of Collier County! Any patient who donates a new toy (or money for us to purchase toys) for this toy drive will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win $100! Let’s bring as many smiles as possible to these kids’ faces. We are now accepting donations through December 10th!
WONDERING WHAT TYPES OF TOYS TO DONATE?
While there are many lists of popular toys for kids of all ages, there is no preapproved donation list for Toys for Tots. You may want to consider donating toys from categories that include sporting equipment/bags/balls, books, board games, radio control cars/trucks, dolls, hand-held electronics, bicycles and skateboards/helmets. Please do not donate toys that look like realistic weapons.
The Salvation Army works with children ages 13-18 on a case by case basis. These children are often referred to us by the District Liaison for the Homeless & Foster Care Education Program run by the Collier County Public Schools, or organizations like Youth Haven, and the Hunger & Homeless Coalition of Collier County.
These children have special needs and would benefit best from receiving a gift card in $10 denominations. Walmart, Target, and even gift cards to the movie theatre allow these children access to things not provided for by food pantries, back-to- school drives, or other items provided by various local social services programs throughout the year.
