In 2012 The Great Nanaimo Toy Drive registered over 750 families and gave out gifts, books and games to over 1,450 children. The children range from new born to 16 years of age.
Distribution: December 19 and December 20, 2012
One parent is allowed into the distribution area to select toys for their children by age and gender categories. Each child also receives a book for their age group and each family is allowed one game. Children are not allowed into the distribution area during this time for privacy reasons.
Registration: November 26th - 30, 2012, from 10am to 4pm.
See the details on The ‘Drop Off and Registration’ Page
The Great Nanaimo Toy Drive is an independent registered charity that works along side the Hamperville group to register and distribute food and gifts to children and families that would otherwise not have gifts at Christmas.
Both groups rely on the generous donations of many individuals and the support of companies in our local community.
