Harrell & Harrell is pleased to announce the launch of the 10th Annual Toy Drive. Toy collection begins Wednesday, November 17 and will continue through Tuesday, December 14.
Our great community, sponsors, donors, and volunteers are coming together once again to help ensure young patients at Wolfson Children’s Hospital and UF Health enjoy the holiday cheer that new toys can bring.
Where to donate toys
Donations for this year’s drive can be dropped off in person during normal business hours at either of our Jacksonville offices:
Donations can also be made online via the Children’s Miracle Network’s Amazon wish list. These donations will be delivered to our radio station partners, WEJZ 96.1 and WGNE Gator Country 99.9.
Both the Amazon list and the downloadable wish list below offer suggestions for what to shop for in stores if you prefer to make an in–person donation. These include action figures, dolls, puzzles, craft kits, distraction toys, clothing, and more.
Making an impact now and year-round
Your donations will be given to patients in the hospital immediately, but they help children and families throughout the year, bringing some comfort during stressful times. Children’s Miracle Network stocks up their toy room so that patients can enjoy new toys throughout the year. In addition, the toys are used in playrooms and other areas at Wolfson Children’s Hospital, and for family group activities.
We also provide collected toys to Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital for patients who continue their rehabilitation there.
Building a great tradition
Since we began supporting the drive nine years ago, we have helped collect nearly 14,000 toys. Even during the pandemic, we collected more than 3,500 toys, our biggest year yet.
According to Partner Julie Harrell, “The annual toy drive is truly one of the highlights of our year. It’s an opportunity to bring people and businesses together and give back to our community. The participation from so many groups inspires us all year long, and we look forward to continuing to expand the impact the toy drive has around the city for years to come.”
