Where to donate toys
Feel the Warmth, in addition to their coat drive is also hosting a toy drive that runs from Nov. 7 - Dec. 5.
Cradles to Crayons also accepts toys (that are in complete good condition) as donations.
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is also accepting donated toys, but because it is a hospital, there are some strict guidelines for what can and cannot be donated.
