Youth Action hosts an Annual Toy Drive to provide families in need with gifts of toys, books, and clothes during the Winter Holiday season. During the winter holiday season, not every family is fortunate enough to receive gifts from their loved ones. In response to this misfortune, Youth Action members organize an annual toy drive in partnership with several community partners.
Since 2005, the drive has collected over 17,000 gifts for families in the Philadelphia area. Youth Action’s Toy Drive begins in October and ends by mid-December with celebratory event for families receiving gifts. At the event, there are gift exchanges, musical entertainment, and dinner is served to the families. In the past, Youth Action has partnered with Peirce College, the Friends Select School, Philadelphia West & South YMCA, Steppingstone Scholars, The Boys & Girls Club, Toys for Tots, and Mattel.
