2023 Toys For Toga is underway!

                                                                                                    Discover Saratoga, DeCrescente Distributing Company, Druthers Brewing Company, Death Wish Coffee, Ball Corporation, and Quick Response have partnered again this year for the 11th Annual Toys for Toga toy drive and fundraiser.

Toys for Toga collected 2,600 toys and raised $7,600 for local children last year with a record 91 businesses participating! We’re hoping to build on that success this year and here’s how you can get involved:

  • Participating businesses will place a Toys for Toga cardboard box in or around their business. The logoed cardboard box is 18 X 18 X 30 and will be delivered to you.
  • From Nov. 1st through Dec. 10th, members of the local community can drop off new, unwrapped toys in your bin. We will be promoting all bin locations on our social media pages and more!
  • Toy boxes will be collected the week of Dec. 11th. Toys will be equally distributed to Franklin Community Center (Saratoga Springs), CAPTAIN Youth and Family Services (Clifton Park), and the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center in time for the holidays.
  • Additionally, each donation box will have a QR code that can be scanned to donate to the Toys for Toga GoFundMe page. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the charities mentioned above. Those interested in supporting the GoFundMe can go to: https://www.gofundme.com/manage/toys-for-toga-2023. Coasters, table tents, and posters are available as well, so please reach out if interested!

For social media purposes, Discover Saratoga is promoting the event using these hashtags: #ToysforToga. We are asking all participating businesses to post, tweet, share, etc. throughout the campaign using these hashtags to help generate awareness.

If you would like to participate in Toys for Toga and have a box delivered to your business or would like to get your workplace more involved in this program, please contact Roberto Cruz at [email protected] or call 518-258-4763.
