Holiday Adoptions!

Monetary Donations and Toy Drive Specifications

If your school, business, workplace, civic group, church group or family is looking to “adopt a family” this holiday season, Happy Wheels is a fantastic option!  What could be more suitable than a charity that delivers new books and toys to children every week?

A large percentage of all Happy Wheels monetary donations, toys and books are collected during the months of November and December.  Because Barnes & Noble donates ALL of our books, we are able to focus on monetary donations and toy drives during the holiday season.  If your group is interested, please contact us and/or see the “Wish Lists” for each program on our website HERE!  Once your collection is completed, please find the appropriate program director’s contact information HERE!

Please note that our respective hospitals do not allow anyone to come with us to deliver toys.  We know that many of you would love that opportunity.  Unfortunately, our hospitals do not allow it.  Also, we are simply OVERFLOWING with certain toys (4-7/8-11 age groups) and cannot accept any items that are not included on our wish lists.  Thank you so much for understanding our storage issues and need-based giving.

Many people ask us what we need most.  As with most non-profits, we struggle for financial support.  Please consider having people donate to Happy Wheels in lieu of gifts at parties, schools, etc.  All donations are tax-deductible.
