SAVANNAH, GA (November 30, 2023) — The Big Savannah Toy Drive is now collecting holiday gifts for children served by Coastal Children’s Advocacy Center (CCAC). Participants are encouraged to sign up to sponsor an individual child’s wish list or to donate more general gift items for the kids, such as stocking stuffers, gift cards, games and craft supplies. The toy drive will be accepting donations through Thursday, December 14.
“We always enjoy creating special holiday memories for the children we serve, and a big part of that each year is provided by the Big Savannah Toy Drive,” said Rose Grant-Wiseman, executive director, CCAC. “For over 30 years, CCAC has provided free investigative and therapeutic services to local children who have been victims of abuse. We are delighted to have such a supportive community to help us make the holidays a little brighter for our children and their loved ones.”
The award-winning Big Savannah Toy Drive offers two ways to participate: donors can sign up to fulfill a wish list or they can view a list of CCAC’s suggested gift items by age group at bigsavannahtoydrive.com/ways-to-donate. Gifts should be new, unwrapped items and can dropped off at the following locations during regular business hours:
