Make an Impact

Your support will brighten the holiday season for youth facing homelessness and poverty.

At HELP USA, we believe everyone deserves a place to call home. We offer prevention services to keep people in their homes, shelters to those facing a housing crisis, and supportive living services for those who need ongoing care to stay in their homes.

For many children, the experience of homelessness can make them feel unseen and unheard — a de-humanizing experience. Receiving a gift for the holidays lets a child know they are seen and that somebody out there cares about them. A toy can generate hope, optimism, and happiness so urgently needed in a time of crisis or trauma.

We collect toys and cash donations at the event, and throughout the holiday season, to put a smile on the face of every child in a HELP USA shelter or supportive living residence.

Can't Make It? Host a Toy Box!

What was your favorite toy growing up? Chances are it was a birthday or holiday gift. Our toys enrich our childhood and create memories that last a lifetime. But more than that, they are tangible tokens of love… because we know it really is the thought that counts.

Host a toy box in your office or neighborhood, collect toys, and make the holidays merry and bright for the nearly 4,000 children living in HELP USA’s shelters and permanent housing.

This year, hosting a toy box can be a great back-to-the-office team-building activity. All you have to do is collect new, unwrapped toys and we will arrange a pickup time. We accept toys for children of every age and gender.
