Toy Drive by Lamacchia Realty benefitting Boston Children’s Hospital

Help us load up our company vans to deliver toys to Boston Children’s Hospital!

We’re happy to announce for the fourth year in a row we’re kicking off the holiday season by hosting a toy drive for a charity we really believe in: Boston Children’s Hospital.

We hope you’ll join us in making this year’s Toy Drive our best yet!

Boston Children’s Hospital has created a “Toy Store” for their inpatient families that will be filled with donated toys from people like you giving during this holiday season. Inpatient families who aren’t able to leave the hospital are invited to shop in the store for free – for their hospitalized child, as well as siblings! Along with donations of books and toys, Boston Children’s Holiday Store uses wrapping paper, ribbon, tags, tape and bows to re-create the holiday experience.

We will load up our company vans a few days before Christmas and deliver all the donated toys to Boston Children’s Hospital in time for this special event.

Join Us!

You can help by donating much-needed toys for children who have to spend the holidays in Children’s Hospital. Simply drop off new, unwrapped toys to any of these locations.

Toy Donation Wish List

If you can’t donate one of these items below, gift cards in any amount from stores such as Target, Best Buy, Toys R Us, Barnes and Noble, Walmart, and Amazon are also accepted.

Boston Children’s Hospital cannot accept used toys, and because of the many varied dietary restrictions, they are unable to accept gifts of food.
