Something other than COVID-19 to think about this holiday season.

Tired of hearing bad news every time you turn on the TV, look at your phone, or open up your laptop? As the holiday season comes and goes, renew your faith in humanity by donating to or volunteering for one of Morristown's charitable organizations.

Toys for Tots

In 2020 Toys for Tots distributed 71,146 toys and supported 45,728 children in our Northern Jersey area.

It’s too late to donate to the non-profit for this Christmas (obviously), but the Toys for Tots campaign is always looking for donations and volunteers.

Get Involved with Toys for Tots in the Morris County area!
