Toy Drive 2017

Each year, Edwin Gould collects gifts for the more than 2,000 children and teens supported across all our programs. This includes children of all ages in foster care, family stabilization programs, and in school-based programs. Many of the children we support come from high-needs neighborhoods and from low-income families. For some, we are able to provide one of the only presents they will receive this holiday season. Our efforts to brighten their holidays are made possible by the generous support of individuals, civic groups, and corporations, and donors have been doing their part to brighten the holidays for the children we support!


To inquire about donating toys, please contact Sharon Pyle at To ensure time for distribution, all toys must arrive by Tuesday, December 19!
