Many of our Toy Bash friends bring their donations the night of, whether in cash or toy form, and donate that night. Did you know that we have drop boxes for donations up all around Southeast Missouri for weeks prior to the actual event?
We are blessed with a load of fantastic sponsors, and each of these sponsors has a donation drop box at their location. They’re ready to take those toys and make some dreams come true!
What this boils down to is this: If you can’t make it to the actual Toy Bash event, you can MOST DEFINITELY donate to the cause before that happens. In fact, you can donate right here on our website!
At the end of the day, our goal is to make as many childhood dreams come true as we can. If it’s the middle of July and you want to make a donation, go for it! We’ll make sure it gets where it needs to go right here in our local community.
The title says it all: Your Donations Matter. They really do, and we can’t say thank you enough for being a part of Happy’s mission!
Barbecue, bands, loads of social time… all of this makes the Toy Bash a magical night. But the best part is the day after, when we get to shop for great toys for the kids!
You can imagine that our volunteers are a bit… groggy the morning after Toy Bash. They worked so hard the night before, taking donations, checking IDs, cooking and delivering the food and so much more. In fact, we know they’d love nothing more than to sleep in, dreaming of sugar plums and all that.
Nope; these sleepy heads are up bright and early with a smile on their faces, as they know it’s SHOPPING DAY! We meet at Toys R Us in Cape Girardeau, grab an army of shopping carts and cut loose on the most fun shopping spree we could imagine.
Loads (like, literally; LOADS) of toys are bought and placed in our trucks for delivery later. We’ve even made a fun habit out of keeping the receipt in one piece for a cool Christmas-y feeling. 🙂
Want to be a part of this fun? Just let us know on our Volunteer page and we’ll be in touch. Happy would LOVE to have you join us!
