How Can You Help?

Mrs. Tee launched her second holiday Toy Drive last year, which was a HUGE success! This year, she needs your help again! Many parents are still struggling to pay their bills and feed their children. Recent layoffs and the pending recession is a fear for many families in our community. So, having Christmas is not a priority for many parents. We want to help families in need to help ease the burden during this holiday season. 

We want everyone who can to donate a $10 toy. Yes, we only want you to spend $10. If you feel led to do more, we will accept your toys, but we expect you to pay at most $10. Now, you may wonder, where can I find a nice $10 toy? There are so many options. You can find a $10 toy at Target, Walmart, 5Below, and Family Dollar is a few places you can go. So, while you are out shopping, grab a $10 toy. 

Toy Donation & Drop-off Hours

You can drop off your toy donation(s) by our center at 6029 Nine Mile Road, Richmond, VA.  We are accepting new, unwrapped gifts for boys and girls - Newborn through Age 12, Monday - Friday from 9 am - 5 pm.  We cannot accept used toys.  You can also purchase toys online and ship them directly to our center using the following information: Tee Care 4U Academy, Attn: Lowanda Walker-Thomas, 6029 Nine Mile Road, Richmond, VA 23223

We know there is a great need, and it is our goal to serve as many families as we can, but we can only do with your help.  

So, here are a few ways you can help us: First, share our toy drive with everyone you know, and on social media.  Second, challenge your family and friends to match your toy donation(s).  Third, get your job involved and ask them if you can set up a box to collect toys. 


If you are not in the position to participate, it's ok, sharing this drive will help us.

Remember, together we can make a BIG IMPACT.  

Our Toy Drive ends December 17th, and we will distribute toys on December 20th - 22nd.
