Toys of JOY 2021

It’s officially the start of our Annual Toys of Joy Toy Drive and Fundraiser and we need your support! This year we are continuing our COVID precautions by bringing the JOY safely! Last year we sent JOY through the mail to over 50 local families affected by pediatric illness and disease. This year we are continuing our Wish List Program for NJ families with children who have or have been treated for Pediatric Cancer  and we are back to delivering toys to local hospitals.

Every Holiday Season Friends of JJ teams up with schools, businesses and organizations to collect presents for children and families spending their holiday season at a hospital. Throughout the festive time of year, with the help of our amazing volunteers, we pick up and deliver toys and gift cards to 25+ hospitals across NJ, NY & PA. The amount of smiles we are able to bring during the holiday season with these initiatives is incredible and we wouldn’t be able to accomplish them without the generosity of our donors and volunteers to reach hospitals in and beyond our community.
