Toy Truck collects both toys and money to support thousands of local children in Porter-Leath programs. Over 6,000 children will receive a gift because of Toy Truck, children that would otherwise receive little or nothing in the form of a gift during the holiday season. Gifts come from individuals, corporate groups, civic organizations, and groups of friends who simply want to ensure that no child in our area is left without a gift. If you would like a toy collection box at your office or for an event, please visit the Contact Us page and let us know. Collection boxes are a great way to involve the entire office in supporting local children and families.
All money collected during Toy Truck is matched dollar-for-dollar by our Secret Santa, which usually results in over $100,000 in support after the match. Monetary gifts are a perfect way to avoid the hustle and bustle of shopping crowds and are very helpful to Porter-Leath in that we can buy toys where toy donations are not enough to meet the need. Monetary gifts are also a great way to honor a friend, family member or co-worker with a heartfelt gift, or to give in memory of someone near and dear to you. To donate online, visit our Donate page. To donate cash, please visit us at Toy Truck during the event to donate. To donate by check, you can drop by Toy Truck, or mail it to us at the address below:

The biggest need for toys is for our 6,000+ Preschool students. These children are all local, so your donation stays in the area. Toys should be new and unwrapped, as well as age-appropriate for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. We do ask that you refrain from donation stuffed animals, toys with small parts like Hot Wheels, toy weapons, and games that include play money or dice. For more ideas on what toys to get, visit our Toy Ideas page. Toy donations may be dropped off at Toy Truck or at our main campus at the address above.
