The 2021 Toy Drive is November 26 through December 20, 2021. The 2021 Santa's Helpers Campaign is generously being sponsored by Albertson’s, Tom Thumb, Don Davis Auto Group, and Milestone Electric. Toys may be dropped off at any local sponsor location through Dec. 15th.

Over 25 community service organizations throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area (Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Denton counties) are approved to distribute toys to needy children, age infant through teen. All agencies within the Santa's Helpers program are approved based on their ability to coordinate applications from needy families, access the Pieces Iris system for cross-referencing of names, and to adequately cover zip codes in areas where there is the most need.
