This is the 12th year for the toy drive and, unfortunately, the amount the children in need rises yearly. Last year there were approximately 14,000 requests and already this year they have received over 20,000 requests. That is a lot of needy children in Southern Nevada and those are only the ones that The Burn Foundation know of. If you are looking to give back this year the Toy Drive is a great way to do it! Without your generosity many Southern Nevada children will be without a Christmas present this year.
The Toy Drive covers three weekends and is staffed by 300 volunteers. Help us make a difference by donating a toy - we are filling up a Silverado with toys! The Burn Foundation is asking for new, unwrapped gifts appropriate for the ages of 0-16 and/or gift cards in $10 increments.
