12:00 PM – 6:00 PMAdd to Calendar
We encourage you to find ways to work together to raise money, buy toys, and have fun! Here are a few ideas from last year but feel free to add your own traditions.
Venmo one person in the block to receive money - could be one per class or one for the whole block
Make a group trip to KMart (right at Astor Place) or on Amazon.com to go on a toy shopping spree
Take plenty of pictures to put on the block and stern instagrams. #sterntaclaus
Build donations around a block bonding evening or outing #toysforshots (be responsible! don't have too much fun with this one)
The drive officially kicks off November 20th but feel free to start collecting toys early!
Logisitics & Guidelines:
Donations will be collected in the KMC lobby starting November 20th from 12:00-1:30PM and 4:30-6:00PM every Monday-Thursday (excluding holiday breaks).
Toys for Tots Campaign closes on December 14th at 6:00 PM.
Types of Toys: New and unwrapped and nothing perishable. People should also be a little realistic. Things for an XBOX or something that requires something that is already expensive is probably not a good idea. Ideally, a stand alone toy.

Point System (Receipt required otherwise will be judged subjectively)
Toys under $5: 2 points
Toys between $5-$15: 10 points
Toys over $15: 20 points
BONUS: Coolest toy award - 150 points
