Care for Real Announces 2017 Toy Drive!

Care for Real Announces 2017 Toy Drive!

We are launching our Annual Toy Drive – one of Care for Real’s most beloved programs helping 800 kids in need ensure they have a great holiday.

Now thru Monday, December 18.  Distribution to begin on Tuesday, December 19.

Donations can be dropped off at Care for Real Mondays-Fridays, 9:00am-3:30pm and Saturdays, 9:00am-12:30pm

Toys should be new and unwrapped to allow parents to choose the most appropriate gifts for the child.


Are you not sure what to buy?  Here are suggestions of the most needed items:

FOR CHILDREN:  dolls, cars, backpacks, legos, puzzles, paint sets, anything hobby, craft and arts related.


While the little ones are so much fun to buy toys for – it’s the teens and tweens that we are seeking donations as they are often forgotten about.

FOR TEENS AND TWEENS: Gift cards and gift certificates (Target,  Best Buy and Amazon are the most treasured), backpacks, movie passes, tickets to events (theater, sports, concerts).

STOCKING STUFFERS:  gloves, mittens, caps and hats, scarves and personal care items (shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, body wash, soap, etc.)
