How to Request Toys for Tots in Western Pennsylvania 2017

This is our annual round-up of Toys for Tots programs in Western Pennsylvania. I’ve done my best to sort through the available information and provide you what you may need to know. PLEASE click through to the applicable link to doublecheck the details.

Some of the Toys for Tots pages are harsh and regimented. Others are heavy on Christian themes. Some are pretty respectful and dignified. I wish I could make it more respectful and dignified for everyone. Also, I cannot confirm that these projects are LGBTQ friendly/affirming. Some are affiliated with the Salvation Army or other faith-based organizations.

Please share this information with anyone who may need it and share it soon – some counties have cutoff dates in late October. Share in groups, share on pages, share via private email. People need accurate information.

Please note that the Play It Forward project is another option. We’ll do a separate post on their organization. Their distribution is Saturday December 16 at the David Lawrence Convention Center. This project CAN be confirmed as LGBTQ welcoming and affirming.
