City’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive Begins Nov. 2
Donations being collected to provide holiday cheer for kids in need
WILSONVILLE, Ore. — Wilsonville Parks and Recreation is coordinating the City’s annual toy drive to provide some holiday cheer for in-need residents in Wilsonville and throughout Clackamas County.
From Nov. 2 to Dec. 8, we invite residents to purchase and drop off new, unwrapped toys at the Parks & Recreation Admin. Building on weekdays between 8 am and 5 pm. Donations can also be dropped at Wilsonville Orthodontics, 9475 SW Wilsonville Rd., Monday-Thursday (hours vary). Other drop spots may be added and announced.
All toys donated are collected and distributed by Toy & Joy/Compassion in Action of Clackamas County to individuals and families in need.
“Every child deserves to experience holiday joy,” said Brian Stevenson, Parks & Recreation Program Manager. “We appreciate the generosity of Wilsonville residents, who are providing some happiness for families who may otherwise not have the means to provide holiday gifts.”
