We encourage all businesses to get involved in their own Reverse Trick or Treat toy drive! Simply put a toy collection box in your business, and help spread the word about Reverse Trick or Treat.
You’ll also have to let our agency know that you plan to get involved. This way we can pick up the donations and give them to the children on time. Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at 860-684-5270 if you plan to get involved.
You can donate anything that will make a child smile and keep them occupied during their medical treatments. Coloring books, puzzles, Matchbox cars, stickers, dolls, and play sets are all great options to give. We do not recommend donating plushies or stuffed animals because they contain fibers that can trigger allergies in certain patients.
Children of all ages are at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, so be sure to purchase toys suitable for different ages!
Additionally, candies, chocolates, and other edible goods are strictly not allowed. Exposure to certain types of candies can actually interfere with necessary medication, and is a huge reason why we push to collect toys instead.
Toy donations may be brought to our office at 8 East Main Street Stafford Springs, CT up until October 24th during regular business hours. As a reminder, plushies and stuffed animals are not allowed as they contain fibers that can trigger allergies in certain patients.
If you cannot drop off a toy donation, you can also donate a monetary donation here, which our agency will use to purchase toys.
