Team Toys 4 Kids Toy Drive
November 14 - December 16
Bring a new, unwrapped toy valued at $10 or more to the Black Hog Tasting Room and receive a free pint of beer.
Toys 4 Kids,the holiday toy drive program has been helping families for more than 30 years. Toys 4 Kids collects new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year and distributes those toys to income eligible families in the community. The success of the program relies on volunteer support and community involvement. Each year with the help of the community, TEAM supplies toys to over 1,500 children; this could not be done without the help of the volunteers, collection sites and the contributions received from generous community members.
Toys are dropped off at designated TEAM Toys 4 Kids Drop Collection Sites throughout the community. Boxes are made available at these locations from mid-November until approximately one week before Christmas. The toys are transported to a Toy Workshop where volunteers sort and classify toys by value and age. The Toys 4 Kids program differs from other holiday toy drives because parents are not simply handed a random toy; parents are able to shop for their children, making selections based on their child’s interests. Families are provided with “Toy Bucks” to shop for toys for each child.
