Donating Toys

Our mission is that every child should have a toy at Christmas! The Friends of Oakley collects new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year, and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community of Oakley.

During the hustle and bustle of your Christmas shopping please consider adding another item to your shopping list and bring some holiday cheer to children and families who might otherwise go without.

Guidelines for toy donations are simple: donated toys should be new and unwrapped, appropriate for ages 0-18 years. Though we screen all articles thoroughly for safety before delivering to the children, please keep safety in mind when you make your selections.
