The Great Nanaimo Toy Drive is entirely supported by the people, groups and businesses of Nanaimo. You can help by purchasing toys and gifts for children ages newborn to 16.
Parents or caregivers select items for their children. These include:
▪ A new toy of reasonable value
▪ A board game or puzzle for the family
▪ An activity kit or puzzle
▪ A book
▪ Stocking stuffers
▪ A stuffed animal for children 10 and under
We welcome all donations and are grateful for the support. Items for children ages 10-16 are always needed.
