Donate to 4th Annual Holiday Toy Drive

November 16

The holiday season that is meant to be full of joy can be a time of stress and financial strain. With your help, we can reduce this burden on Madison-area families.

Wisconsin Youth Company is hosting its 4th Annual Holiday Toy Drive to benefit children and families who use Elver Park and Theresa Terrace Neighborhood Center programs and services. The need this year is greater than ever due to rising costs of toys and games, on top of rising costs of living.

Every toy, game, gift, or financial donation makes a difference for the families in our community.

How can you help?

  • Check out our Amazon Charity List to purchase gifts and ship them directly to us, or use this list as inspiration.
  • Purchase gift cards for restaurants and stores near Elver Park Neighborhood Center (Madison’s southwest side). Gift cards are great gifts and especially appreciated by our teen program participants.
  • Drop off gifts at one of our donation stations. Find a full list of locations on our website, or contact Community Engagement Director Takela Harper at or 608-492-4312 to arrange a drop-off time at Elver Park Neighborhood Center.
  • Make a monetary donation. You can fill the gap in donated gifts and the need through a donation.

Please note: All donated items need to be new or unused and in their original packaging.
