Please donate to Beech Brook's #Giving Tuesday Toy Drive!

We'll be collecting toys and gift cards for the children and families served by Beech Brook and we need your help! For many of these children whose parents struggle to meet their basic needs, these may be the only toys they receive this holiday season.

We need gifts that are:

  • New and unwrapped
  • Valued between $15-$30
  • For children between the ages of 1 and 12.
  • Walmart Gift Cards in amounts of $15, $20, or $25

Please also consider donating empty gift bags, tissue paper, wrapping paper and tape

Drop-Off:

Tuesday, November 29
Between 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Beech Brook (3737 Lander Road, Pepper Pike).


If you are unable to drop off your gifts on Giving Tuesday, please contact Heidi Lang at hlang@beechbrook.org or 216.831.2255, ext 2240 and we will gladly find another time!

Hear what our staff shared with us about last year's #GivingTuesday Toy Drive:

  • Just wanted to say “thank you” from my clients who received a gift. One little girl received a doll. The expression on her face was priceless. She yelled out, “This is the tallest doll I’ve ever had!” And she asked, “Could you tell Beech Brook Santa Claus 'thank you' for me?” Again, we say thanks much. - Robin Taliaferro, School-Based Therapist
  • The toy drive was amazing, and my families benefitted greatly. I was able to find toys that fit the children’s personalities, and the parents of both families were overjoyed. Thank you so much for the sunshine to cloudy family challenges. - Carla Calhoun, Supportive Visitation Coach 
  • The boys were extremely happy they had something to open on Christmas Day. They would not have had anything without the gifts being provided by Beech Brook. Thank you so much! -  Jeanene Jackson, Family Center Child Care Worker
  • I do supportive visitation and the children, as well as the parents, were happy that I even thought of their children during the holiday. It enhanced the relationship between us all. They were just grateful! - Patricia Jones, Visitation Coach and Youth Mentor
  • I would like to thank you for the donations and support for our families during the Christmas season. The gifts received were very much appreciated! All the parents who received toys and gift cards were very grateful.
    • One father of six who took classes at the Family Center stated that he was unaware of all the services and resources we offered. He was grateful that all his children received gifts from Beech Brook.
    • One mother, whose children are in foster care, said it was a blessing for her that she would be able to take a gift to her children while visiting with them.
    • Another parent was elated that she was able to receive gifts for her children because she did not have any money to buy them anything at the time.
    • One of the older children who received a gift card was full of smiles and said she would on her way to Target that day to buy herself something.  - Debra Brown, Family Center Parenting Program Manager
