21 Jan Donations Available for Nonprofits: Toys and Arts & Crafts
Besides clothing and personal hygiene products, toys are among the most requested items in our online catalog. As you might imagine, the demand for toy donations reaches its peak around the holiday / Christmas season every year.
However, we know that toys can benefit children and teens all year round. Toys can help kids deal with the trauma of experiencing a natural disaster, distract themselves from an environment of poverty, or simply as a way to have fun and play. At Good360, toys are a critical part of our mission to transform lives through product donations. In 2018 alone, we distributed 454,483 toys to our network of nonprofit partners.
Our toys come from generous corporate donors such as Mattel, Hasbro, Disney, and others.
Our online catalog offers coloring books, trucks, dolls and doll houses, racing cars, board games, various playsets, action figures, fidget spinners, among other items. We also have sporting equipment such as basketballs and catch ball sets, beach toys, and arts and crafts supplies such as scissors and glue.
In particular, we see overwhelming demand for American Girl dolls, often exceeding our capacity to fulfil requests. In 2019, we donated approximately 5,500 American Girl dolls—worth more than $630,000—to thousands of U.S. nonprofits that are dedicated to helping young children in need. More information on our American Girl donation program is available here. Separately, you may also check our catalog to see if American Girl dolls are available.
