    Individuals need to apply by Dec. 1 so that applications can be processed. The Toy Fund will make every effort to accommodate all children in need, but gifts cannot be guaranteed for late applicants.

    We’ll process your application and if you qualify, we’ll contact you starting mid-November explaining where and when to pick up the gifts. Gifts must be picked up as scheduled. The location, days and hours of operation will be included in the letter or phone message.


    Group leaders represent agencies and organizations that solicit applications from clients and community members who need assistance to access the fund.

    Group applications are due Nov. 3, early in the season. After we process the applications and pack the gifts, group leaders pick them up at our warehouse and bring them to distribution centers that are convenient for the recipients. There are many partners in this effort, including trucking companies and social service organizations. These groups do good work and are a joy to work with each year.
