Come visit our NEW Toy Room!
Our new location is at Legacy Place, Dedham (next to P.F. Chang's). Get directions and hours

HOW can I give?
In addition to dropping off a new, unwrapped gift at any of our drop-off sites, there are several other ways to participate in the gift drive:

  • Wish Lists » Select a gift for a particular child or purchase essentials for a family using our Wish List website. This easy online tool allows you to search by age, gender, gift type, family size, etc. Then go out and purchase the item(s) and deliver to one of our drop-off sites.
  • Buy Gifts Online » No time to deliver a gift? Purchase one online and have it shipped to the Toy Room for free! All items on this special site were requested by our program staff to help provide for the youth who may not have their wishes fulfilled.
  • Gift Card Challenge » Donate a gift card and help us double its value! Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture will match – dollar for dollar – up to $5,000 in gift card donations.
