The gift of giving

Toys and entertainment

Because these items often end up being a luxury, you can be responsible for bringing great joy to a family in need by donating old toys, movies, books or games so they can spend time learning and having fun together.

Organization to consider
  • Reno-Toys Foundation : The Reno-Toys Foundation gives recycled and refurbished toys to organizations that help children from disadvantaged families or who have a sick child to help bring them a little happiness despite difficult circumstances. Monetary donations are also accepted and you can volunteer to help the Foundation directly to maintain its activities with the families.
