Ways you can help with our 4th Annual Holiday Toy Drive…

  • Volunteer to help organize efforts and gift drop-offs.
  • Donate NEW and UNWRAPPED toys to one of our drop-off locations below.
  • Spread the word! Share with your friends or on social media.

Toys and Donations Will Be Distributed to Children at the Following Community Non-Profit:

LifeWorks offers support and resources to youth and young families experiencing homelessness in the areas of housing, counseling, and education and workforce. LifeWorks is leading Austin’s community effort to end youth homelessness, opening the door for our city to become the first in the United States to achieve this goal. We are fearless advocates for youth and young families and believe that everyone deserves a place to call home, the chance to heal, and the opportunity to learn and to work.

Every year, LifeWorks provides a pathway to self-sufficiency for more than 4,000 youth and families, many of whom are facing life’s most difficult challenges, including homelessness, trauma, and abuse.

Gifts received at the drop-off locations will go to families enrolled in LifeWorks programs.
