NNWx Food
and Toy Drive

We are excited to announce our annual food and toy drive! This year, we are looking for drop-off locations where people can donate food and toys for families in need during the holiday season.

If you are willing to be a drop-off location, please fill out this form. It is a quick and easy way to help make a difference in the lives of others.

As a drop-off location, you will be responsible for providing a space where people can donate food and toys. You will also be responsible for collecting the donations and delivering them to our organization.

We will provide you with all of the necessary materials, including flyers, posters, and collection bins. We will also work with you to promote the food and toy drive in your community.

Being a drop-off location is a great way to give back to your community and make a difference in the lives of others. It is also a great way to get your family and friends involved in the holiday spirit.

Thank you for your generosity!


Holiday Food and Toy Drive Hosted by NNWx

Starting October 15th

What to Donate

When making donations to those in need, it is important to consider the following:

  • What do people need? Not everyone needs the same things, so it is important to think about the specific needs of the people you are supporting. For example, families with young children may need diapers, formula, and baby food, while older adults may need canned goods, toiletries, and warm clothing.

  • Is the item new or used? Many organizations accept donations of used items, but it is important to make sure that items are in good condition and clean. Some organizations may only accept new items, such as toys and underwear.

  • Is the item appropriate? Some items, such as food and toys, should be appropriate for the age and cultural background of the people you are supporting. For example, if you are donating toys, avoid toys that contain violence or stereotypes.

  • Is the item safe? Avoid donating items that could be harmful, such as food that is expired or toys that have small parts that could be a choking hazard.

 

Here are some specific ideas for donations to a holiday food and toy drive:

  • Turkey/Ham
