The following items are recommended for donations:

  • Toys
  • Books
  • Puzzles
  • Games
  • Art materials
  • Craft kits
  • Sports equipment
  • Movie theatre gift cards

In addition to individual families, we often provide gifts to others through various agencies and organizations. Barbie dolls and guns are discouraged by some of our recipient organizations,  so we ask that you keep this in mind when making your gift choices.

We use proceeds from your annual raffle and cash donations to “fill in the gaps” if any.

Clothing Donations

We do not collect clothing as part of this drive. There are many local clothing drives during the season and many agencies accept clothes year-round. We ask that you donate directly to these fine programs.

Food Donations

If you wish to donate food for the holidays, please donate directly to the Cornucopia Food Pantry on campus or your local food pantry in your community.

Pet Food/Supplies

If you would like to remember our furry friends, donate pet food or pet supplies to Elderpet, a program of the Thompson School of Applied Science or visit your local pet shelter.
