This is our annual (8+ year) round-up of Toys for Tots programs in Western Pennsylvania for 2020. 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. I will update as information becomes available.

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. So proceed with that in mind.

One thing I noticed is that most of the projects have cut back hours, enrollment times, toys that will be distributed, etc. A few other things to bear in mind

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 To Be Announced. at the David Lawrence Convention Center. This project CAN be confirmed as LGBTQ welcoming and affirming. If you have items to donate, I very much suggest you consider Play It Forward. Here is there donation page.

When you visit the Toys for Tots websites, you can search by County. Be sure to click on the Request a Toy OR About Toys For Tots > Local and National News links if you don’t see information on the homepage. Poke around to find a phone number or email address.

If you cut and paste from this list, please include the link to the original post, thank you.
