Holiday Toy Drive: Sort & Pack With Us

December 18, 2021, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Holiday Toy Drive: Sort & Pack With Us

Members only. Registration required.

Eastern State’s annual toy drive benefits local children whose parents are currently or were recently incarcerated. In Pennsylvania alone, there are approximately 81,000 children with a parent incarcerated in a Pennsylvania state prison. This year’s Holiday Toy Drive runs from November 26 until December 22, and we will be accepting donations of unwrapped toys or children’s books for kids of all ages.

Eastern State members are invited to help us spread cheer to families experiencing incarceration during the holidays. Join us as we sort and prepare toys, that have been donated by visitors, for pick-up by our partner organizations. Plus, write and send a holiday postcard to someone who is currently incarcerated.

This is an in-person event, free for all members, advance registration required. Space is limited. Please dress warmly for this event and wear comfortable clothing and shoes as we will be moving and packing toys and boxes.
