Donating toys and other materials

Many of the toys being loved by children at our Kimbourne and Terry Fox sites were previously loved by children in their own homes, and for that we are very grateful.

If you wish to donate a gently used or new toy, please speak with our staff or email us at

We NEVER accept stuffed animals.  We are not able to accept boxes and bags of random toys, so please don’t leave these items at our door.  We do have some ideas about where it would be appropriate to drop off these items.  We recommend visiting these websites to determine which items are and are not being accepted.
