The Society of St. Vincent de Paul – Evansville District Council is partnering with WIKY 104 FM on the 6th annual Ton of Toys Program to provide toys and gifts to children in families of those experiencing financial difficulties.
How can you get involved?
- Bring a new, unwrapped toy during normal business hours to the Lucas Oil Center on either North Green River Road or West Lloyd Expressway, Donut Bank Bakery and Coffee shops in Evansville or Newburgh, Eyemart Express on East Florida Street – Suite 102, or the Center for Pediatric Therapy on Shamrock Drive beginning Monday, November 20, 2023. The last day for donating is Friday, December 15.
- Make a $20 donation (or amount of your choosing) to help us with Ton of Toys! You can complete the form below – safe & secure online giving. St. Vincent de Paul is recognized as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
- Volunteer your time to help us pick up, shop, sort, transfer toys, or help neighbors on shopping day! There are lots of opportunities for volunteers.
How does the process work for the family needing assistance?
Families need to be referred by a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. Call (812) 425-3485 to request a referral. Information and a copy of the completed voucher will be mailed or emailed (if applicable) to the participating family.
Shopping days are Tuesday and Wednesday, December 19-20, 2023. Parents receiving toys for their children will be invited to make a donation to help another family in need this winter with rent and utilities. Each child receives some significant type of gift along with stocking stuffers, games, puzzles and winter hats and gloves.
For families with children enrolled at the St. Vincent Early Learning Center, please refer to the information distributed through their center.
