Holiday Toy Drive

Help to Make the Holiday Season Bright
For Childhood Cancer Patients and Their Siblings

The American Cancer Society invites you to help with the Holiday Toy Drive by donating a new toy for children affected by cancer.

Children of all ages and their families will be celebrating this holiday season! But for families with a child who has been diagnosed with cancer, the holidays can be a difficult time financially. To help these families this holiday season, the American Cancer Society offers children who have or have had cancer as well as all siblings in their family the chance to celebrate through donated toys, games, and other gift items.
"This is an opportunity to help a child who is truly in need,” said Barb Nicholas, Director of American Cancer Society Childhood and Family Programs. “Some parents tell me that if they did not have this chance to pick out toys and gifts here at the American Cancer Society that their children would not have a Christmas.”

Last year, we helped 291 children during the Holiday season with over 1000 donated toys. This year, we are already seeing a greater need for donations due to the state of the economy.

We ask that donations be of new toys, for any age group. Monetary donations can also be made and we also gladly accept gift cards.

Parents will get the opportunity throughout the month of December to visit the Toy Room located at the American Cancer Society Offices in North Phoenix (Tatum & Bell) to choose the toys they wish to give to their children.

Please consider making a donation this Holiday Season.
All toys can be delivered to:
American Cancer Society
4550 East Bell Road, Ste 126
Phoenix, AZ 85032
Open from 8:30am – 5:00pm (M-F)

For more information or to arrange toy donation pick-up,
please call 602-778-7629.

On behalf of all of the Volunteers and Staff of the American Cancer Society Childhood and Family Programs, Thank you for your generous support!
