2022 BGCM Toy Drive

Our mission through the Toy Drive is to provide at least one gift this holiday season for every member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis. By doing so, the burden that many families feel during the joyous but often stressful holiday season is eased and they can focus their resources on moving their family out of the cycle of poverty. Achieving this mission is only made possible with the support of our generous Toy Drive sponsors, collection partners, and the Memphis community!

Our 2022 Toy Drive is a FAR different undertaking than last year. In partnering with the City of Memphis and MSCS we have added 10 new Club locations within MSCS Schools doubling our Club locations. With all these new Clubs, our membership numbers are increasing and those numbers continue to climb weekly (most of which are teenagers), which means our need for toys and donations have increased…such a WONDERFUL problem to have!

Want to participate in our city-wide Toy Drive?

Every year we partner with numerous organizations (corporations, apartment complexes, places of worship, etc.) to collect toys, sponsorships, and gift cards for our Club members during the holiday season. BGCM provides you with a Toy Drive Collection Box and tool kit including a wish list from our Club members. You then spread the word about the Holiday Gift Drive to your friends, colleagues, and neighbors who bring unwrapped toys to fill the donation box, and our partners at Black Tie Moving pick up all donations by December 9th. We then give all the wonderful gifts to our Club Directors to distribute to our members for the holidays!
