Christmas in July Toy Drive

Amazon Wish List

For more than 20 years, the Center has provided holiday gifts for children and adolescents up to 18 years of age through the Dear Santa program. Child clients in need, and their siblings, receive donated gifts from community sponsors. Because many of the children have limited resources, many wish lists consist of basic items like clothing, a winter coat, new shoes and, of course, their Christmas wish for Santa. Dear Santa and the Christmas in July Toy Drive are presented by Discovery, Inc. 

The Dear Santa Program helps serve approximately 2,300 children and families throughout East Tennessee each year. Of that total, more than 560 children clients and their siblings were served directly through Christmas toy drive donations. As with the services we provide in the community, the need is always greater. 

The Christmas in July Toy Drive will take place through the month of July, collecting new, unwrapped toys; new clothing and basic hygiene items to be utilized this Christmas season.
