The 20th Toy Lift in Charlottesville is Upon Us!

November 15, 2008

This year is the 20th anniversary of the Toy Lift and we hope it will be the most successful year ever!

One way you can help is to volunteer! How do we collect toys, sort them and distribute all in one weekend? Come to our volunteer meeting to find out how the lift weekend works and how we prepare for it and how we finish up for the year. It is a great time for families, friends, youth groups, scouts or anyone who loves to volunteer.

If you would like to donate a toy to the lift before Dec. 5th the early drop off locations are: Anytime Fitness – Crozet, CVaMP, Creative Press, Gold’s Gym, The Running Company, Seminole Total Health, Wilson School of Dance or you may email Jim Duncan for pick up service.

Want to donate to Toy Lift, but not sure what to get?  How about adopting a family?

Call us or e-mail us.  Tell us you want to adopt a family.  We’ll tell you how many kids, ages, genders, and what the kids really want.  You put together a complete package made up of main and secondary gifts, stocking stuffers, books & a family game or activity.Then just label your toys or books with the control # and bring them to Gold’s Gym and we’ll make sure it gets to the right family. You can specify  the size of the family you want, the age range you’re interested in, or even the county they live in! It’s also a great way for a small office or group to help.
