Holiday drives generate all of what we give away to local, low-income families at the Holiday Toy Shop. Teen children are often overlooked at this time of year but we want teens to feel as supported as our younger kids. Help us by donating some cool gifts that a teen will love.

New Teen Gift Drives run in November and December, with the last date for delivery of all items on Friday 13th December 2019. 

A drive is a great way for a group to provide assistance. If you organize a large drive in your neighborhood, school or work, Samaritan House can provide donation boxes and posters and may be able to work with you to schedule a pickup.
