Town of East Hartford Announces Community Toy Drive

November 23, 2022

To help brighten the holiday season for children in our community, the Town of East Hartford is conducting a community toy drive. Donations will be used to help our Social Services Division and Police Department fulfill toys for kid’s programs for East Hartford residents. 
Individuals can drop off donations at the following locations:

  1. Raymond Library first floor lobby at 840 Main Street
  2. East Hartford Senior Center entrance at 15 Milbrook Drive
  3. Social Services office located in the lower level of Town Hall at 740 Main Street

Toys for children of all ages can be donated; however, the greatest need for donations are age-appropriate items for children 10 years of age and under. Individuals are asked to donate new, unwrapped items that do not require batteries. Additional options include hats, gloves and scarves in children’s sizes. Monetary donations are also welcome; checks can be dropped off at the Social Services office and should be made payable to East Hartford Social Services Holiday Programs
In order to allow sufficient time for departments to distribute toys and other gifts to families for the Christmas Holiday, we are accepting donations through Tuesday, December 6, 2022.
Information about the Social Services Christmas program can be accessed at 2022 Christmas Program Final Sign-Ups | Residents can also contact the Social Services office at (860) 291-7248 for any questions about the community toy drive, or for assistance with Christmas program applications
