Toy Collection Events

If your business or workplace collects toys on behalf of the Great Nanaimo Toy Drive, please drop them off at one of our drop-off locations. If you have more than a truckload, please contact us and we will do our best to arrange pick up. Be sure to tag us on Facebook and/or Instagram and we will help promote your event.

Coins for Kids (Year-Round)

The Nanaimo News Bulletin has been collecting Coins for Kids for many years and has collected over $175,000 over the years for families in need. Feel free to drop by and drop off your spare change in the collection jar at the front desk of the Nanaimo News Bulletin (777 Poplar Street), any of Nanaimo’s Quality Foods locations, and John’s Bedrooms (1707 Bowen Road).
