Giving Children in Need a Merry Christmas!

Click here to give a financial gift during our 2017 toy drive.

For many of the children who come to Youth Haven, times are tough at home, and there won't be gifts under the tree on Christmas morning. That's why it's our privilege to partner with Family Life Radio to collect toys for these kids, to help them have a Merry Christmas in the midst of their difficult circumstances.

Toy DriveWe need your help to make this possible!

In addition to your prayers and financial support, would you please consider donating a new, unwrapped toy for a child between the ages of 7 and 14 this Christmas? It's a very practical way to show disadvantaged children they are loved and valued.

A Few Toy Suggestions:

  • Legos
  • Sports equipment & balls; NERF balls
  • Dolls (all ethnicities)
  • Craft kits
  • Jewelry or jewelry boxes
  • Small make-up kits
  • Bath & body sets
  • Puzzles (100-500 pieces)
  • Board Games
  • Backpacks
  • Fleece throw blankets
  • Batteries (especially AAA)

More Giving Opportunities

For a child whose basic needs aren't always met at home, a favorite gift may be something as simple as their own toothbrush or shampoo. Your donation of the following items will help provide for those needs and make a child feel special:

  • New clothing items, primarily in children's sizes 6-16. We also have a few older children and teens who need small/medium adult sizes. Suggestions include sweatpants or athletic pants, jeans, t-shirts, sweatshirts, belts, socks, and underwear. At our Michigan campus, we also need winter coats, gloves, and hats.
  • New shoes and boots to fit children ages 7-14. This typically includes anything from a child's size 11 to an adult size 8 or 9. Currently, our biggest need is for the smaller sizes within that range, up to a size 2 or 3.
  • Backpacks and school supplies: We love to equip the children with the tools they need to be successful in school! Backpacks, paper, notebooks, pens and pencils, colored pencils, and markers make great gifts!
  • Toiletries such as shampoo, bath and shower gel, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, and washcloths are given to each child who comes to Youth Haven. Full-size bottles are always appreciated!

We hope you'll be able to deliver your toys to the Youth Haven office, either in Michigan or in Arizona, so we can thank you in person for your generosity. Toys may be dropped off at our campus locations all throughout the holiday season.

  • Youth Haven Corporate Office, 3796 Perrine Road, Rives Junction
  • Youth Haven Arizona Office, 16848 S Vail Rd, Eloy
  • Additional drop-off locations are currently being arranged. Please check back soon for a list!

If your church or group is collecting toys and you would like a Youth Haven staff member to come and share about our outreach or be part of a special event, please let us know! We'd love to partner with you in that way.

Finally, please include your name and address with your donations, and we will do our best to send you a photograph of the child who receives the toy you gave.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas!
