Brashear Association's Toy Guide

Toy season is upon us, actually, for the Brashear it is toy season all year. We begin collecting in January in anticipation of our Holiday Toy Distribution in December. 
2014 is seeing a larger number of families in need of assistance this holiday season and with more families comes more children in need of toys.
We distribute new, unwrapped toys to children 12 years of age and younger. If you can give this year it would be greatly appreciated. Don't know what to give? Check out our list of ideas below to help guide you this holiday season.

Toy Ideas:
Board games
Athletic balls
Science kits
Craft/art kits
Stuffed animals
Roller blades/skates
Outdoor games
Play-doh /clay
Action figures
Infant soft toys
Small electronic toys
Cooperative games
Unisex learning games

Stocking Stuffers:
Coloring books
Sketch pads
Art supplies
Travel size lotions etc.
Pocket games
Playing cards
Winter gloves and hats

Toy Drive Ideas: 
+ Small businesses/organizations can notify clients they are accepting toys for Brashear.
+ Individuals could request toys in place of gifts this year for Christmas.
+ Families can adopt a family: donate Giant Eagle gift cards and allow children to pick out a toy and a stocking stuffer for another child their age. 
+ Organize a friendly competition between departments or businesses to see who can bring in more toys.

Don't have time to shop? We accept monetary donations for our little elves to go out and buy toys.
We strongly encourage all toys are dropped off to our 2005 Sarah Street location by December 15th.

If you have any questions concerning our Toy drive please call Tracy Frank at 412.431.2236 x 14.
Thank you for your generosity.
