  • Ther is a group on here that is doing it but I don't know much about it. Have you talked to the Salvation army about Toys for Tots? What about some local churches?

  • Have you looked on craigslist for some gently used toys for cheap? Or even freecycle if you are lucky.

  • Call the local TV stations or go to their websites and ask how to sign up for their gift programs. Also call your town offices, county offices, fire department, and police department and ask about their Christmas programs. Goggle your county and look at their website for their programs. There are all sorts of programs out there but you have to search because each has a different name. Also, each website has a "contact us" link where you can ask about these charities. GL
