Note to Parents and Guardians
This year you will not be going into the Toy Drive location and picking out your gifts. With Covid-19, we will be pre-packaging gifts using the age and sex of the child. You will be driving up to the front door and the package of gifts will be brought out to you. This is the only way we can ALL stay safe.
How to Register
Parents or guardians must call the phone number below during the hours specified and register their children. This is the only means to register this year. Please check registration days and hours by clicking on The Great Nanaimo Toy Drive Registration Office.
In order to register we require care cards and a Nanaimo area address. This is to make sure the family is within our area of coverage and that the children have not already been registered by another parent or guardian by mistake.
If care cards are lost then we will accept a printout from a doctor or pharmacy.
Loaves and Fishes Registration
There will not be a joint registration with Loaves and Fishes this year as they also do not have families come into their locations. If you are picking up food from Loaves and Fishes, they will be able to provide you with a handy card to contact us and write down your date and time for pickup.
The Toy Drive independent registration will be available for three weeks by phone call only from Monday, November 16 to Friday, December 4, from 10am to 4pm.

There WILL NOT be a late registration this year.
