Holiday Toy Drive

November 18, 2023 - December 11, 2023

This holiday season, we need your help to ensure every child has a little something special to unwrap!  That’s why we’re collecting new, unwrapped toys to benefit Resurrection Life, a member of the WNY Holiday Partnership. Drop off a toy to the collection bin in our Admissions Lobby or shop on Amazon using this link.

Plus, when you donate a new, wrapped toy and you can enter to win a new Hape High Seas Wooden Toddler Rocking Ride On!
