We are pleased to announce the launch of the 9th Annual Holiday Toy Drive on Monday, November 16. Toy collection will continue through Thursday, December 17.
How You Can Help
We are partnering with radio stations WEJZ 96.1 and Gator Country 99.9 again this year to collect toys for the drive. Donations of new, unwrapped toys may be dropped off at these participating Harrell & Harrell offices in Jacksonville:
Jacksonville Main Office
4735 Sunbeam Road
7045 Blanding Boulevard
This year, we are also providing an Amazon wishlist to make it even easier for our community to participate. Items purchased from the wishlist will ship directly to our radio station partners.
Types of Toys and Items Our Recipients Need
If you would like to donate through the Amazon wishlist, the items on the list have been chosen specifically for the children who will be spending the holiday season at Wolfson Children’s Hospital and UF Health.
For direct donations to be dropped off at the offices listed above, toys are needed for all ages, from infants to teenagers. Suggestions include distraction toys that can be used while a child is undergoing a procedure, fun games that children can play in bed with their families, and dress-up costumes to make children feel special. For infants, rattlers, sound machines, teething toys, and crib mobiles are needed. Socks, shorts, t-shirts and other basic clothing items are also needed to ensure children have clean clothes to wear home.
All toys and items collected this year will be sanitized before being delivered. Your donations will be used and enjoyed not only during the holiday season, but also year-round. Some of the donations received during our annual drive stock the shelves of the Children’s Miracle Network’s toy closet, which helps make sure toys are on hand for any occasion throughout the year.
