Christmas Toy Drive

From November 15th – December 11th the Foundation will be collecting NEW & UNWRAPPED toys for our Christmas Toy Store on Saturday, December 14th in Chester. The toy drive is being held to benefit the children of Chester this holiday season.

This event is graciously being sponsored by Hazley Builders.

Drop Off Locations:

  • Hicks’ House 914 Kenmara Drive West Chester, PA 19380
  • Watkins’ House 117 Sussex Rd West Chester, PA 19380
  • Tarazi’s House 216 Taylor’s Mill Road, West Chester, 19380
  • Ciarlones’ House 810 South Apple Hill Drive, West Chester, PA 19380

Over 400 children from Chester, PA are individually selected to “shop” in the toy store for their Christmas presents. Check out pictures from last year. Following their shopping experience they bring the toys out to their parents who take the toys to our wrapping station to wrap the presents to put under the tree for Christmas day! While the parents get the presents wrapped the children are picking out presents for their parents and enjoying hot chocolate. For some of these children these may be the only gifts they receive this Christmas.

Register to volunteer at the toy store today!


We are in need of over 2,000 toys to support over 400 children. Please consider donating toys for children ages 5-12 (Pre-School through 7th Grade). Below is simply a suggested list of possible toys to donate, but not limited to what is listed.

We are also collecting NEW and GENTLY USED gifts for Mom, Dad, and special people in the children’s lives so they can shop for family members and get to experience the gift of giving themselves. See a list of suggested items listed below.
