Our holiday drive has been making a difference in the lives of children for more than 20 years. Donate a gift to help make the holiday season brighter for children in need.
To help, all it takes is a pledge to fill one or more gift bag(s) using the Terp Toy Drive donation form. The bag you pledge to fill will come labeled with an age range, along with a list of suggested gift items.
If you are unsure about what age range a particular item falls into, don't worry, our committee checks each bag and re-sorts donations, if necessary. Please do not gift wrap items.
You can drop off bags at any residence hall service desk, or fill out the inquiry form to request a pick up from an on-campus location.

Two of our major donation locations are elementary schools, therefore, we greatly appreciate donations in the 6-9 and 10-13 age range. Additionally, we typically find that donations for older teenagers (15-18 age range) are minimal as well.
No minimum is required, and all donations are appreciated.
There is no suggested monetary amount. All donations are appreciated.
No, used items cannot be accepted.
No, cash or check donations are not accepted.
Please make all gift donations by Wednesday, December 5, 2018.
