SAVANNAH, GA (November 28, 2022) — Now through Friday, December 16, the Big Savannah Toy Drive is collecting holiday gifts for children served by Coastal Children’s Advocacy Center (CCAC). Participants are encouraged to donate specific items on the children’s individual wish lists as well as more general items for the kids, such as stocking stuffers, gift cards, games, and school and craft supplies.
“The holidays will be brighter for our children thanks to the Big Savannah Toy Drive,” said Rose Grant-Wiseman, executive director, CCAC. “Each child creates a wish list, and seeing that fulfilled gives them hope. We are so thankful to be a part of a community that supports our kids.”
The award-winning Big Savannah Toy Drive offers two ways to participate: Donors can sign up to fulfill a wish list at bigsavannahtoydrive.com/ways-to-donate, or they can view a list of CCAC’s suggested gifts at bigsavannahtoydrive.com/ways-to-donate#suggested. Gifts should be new, unwrapped and dropped off at the following locations during regular business hours:
- The Eichholz Law Firm (319 Eisenhower Dr., Savannah)

On Friday, December 16, the campaign will conclude with a finale event with Old Savannah Tours providing a trolley to pick up all of the gifts collected during the toy drive. The wrap-up event will be held at The Eichholz Law Firm immediately following the collection.
