Gift Ideas

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.

Volunteers will package toys into bags for the parents this year. These include:

▪ A new toy of reasonable value

▪ A board game or puzzle for the family

▪ An activity kit or puzzle

▪ A book

We welcome all donations and are grateful for the support. Items for children ages 10-16 are always needed.

Donations of money are also accepted, as our “shoppers” can then select gifts that are in short supply. Money can be left with the Customer Service at Woodgrove Centre or by contacting any board member.
