Toys for Tots Holiday Toy Drive 2014



Stanford @ Porter Drive is partnering with Palo Alto Fire Department and Toys for Tots to bring hope and joy to families in need this holiday season!

Toys for Tots distributes new, unwrapped toys to needy children each Christmas. From now until December 18th, donations of new toys can be dropped off in the red barrels located in the Main Lobbies of 3145 and 3160 Porter.


Toys for Tots does not publish a list of toys to donate, they suggest donors consider what might be an appropriate gift for their own child. Also consider that when selecting a toy, keep in mind it may be the only one a child will receive.

Here are a few suggested items: Sporting goods, toy cars/planes/boats, dolls (Barbie, G. I. Joe, etc.), board games, books, scooters, puzzles, models, hand-held video games and small electronics.

Pre-Teens/Teen gifts: Sporting equipment/bags/balls; books, backpacks, cosmetics, purses, watch/wallet gift sets, bath gift sets, board games, radio control cars/trucks, hand-held electronics, skateboards/helmets, curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers.

Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food.

If donated, such items will NOT be distributed.
