Monetary Donations

When you donate online through our secure holiday drive donation page, our staff will use 100% of your donation to purchase presents from children’s wish list. If you prefer to mail a check, please send it to:

The Child Center of NY
ATTN: Holiday Toy Drive
118-35 Queens Boulevard, Sixth Floor
Forest Hills, NY 11375

Please, do not send physical gifts or gift cards.

This year, a monetary gift is the most effective and safest way to send holiday gifts to our children. We want to reduce the risk of exposing our staff and volunteers to COVID-19, and processing physical gift cards and gifts would entail a sorting and distribution site. Please donate by visiting our holiday toy drive donation page, and 100% of your donation will be used to purchase presents from a child’s wish list. Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time. We appreciate your support!

Donate to our holiday toy drive!
