Donate Toys to Children with ASD this Holiday Season
The Center for Autism’s 2022 Holiday Giving Program
We invite you to make this holiday season special for the children and families we serve by helping us give a gift to the children in our programs. In addition to caring for a child with autism, over 70% of the families we serve live in poverty. We hope that you, your co-workers, family, and friends will participate!
Amazon or Monetary Donations
The Social Competency team has curated a list of toys we know our kids will absolutely love! If you are interested in donating a toy, please visit the following website to see our Amazon Wish List:
Items will be sent directly to the Center. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please contact Morgan Segal at 215-695-4311 or email@example.com. We request that donations are received no later than Thursday, December 15, 2022.
Host a Toy Drive / Donate Toys
Each holiday season, the Center gives each child in our programs a present. Each toy is hand selected for that child, wrapped and given to them when Santa comes to visit. For many, this may be one of very few gifts that they receive. As we have over 400 children in our programs, your support in donating a toy or hosting a toy drive is extremely appreciated. If you would like to host a drive, we can provide you with materials to help in your collection efforts. We kindly request that your toy donations meet the criteria outlined as follows:
– New & unwrapped toys, games, books & activities
– Boys & girls
– Ages 2 through 16 years old
– Due to allergies, no stuffed animals please
Make a Monetary Donation
