How your school can get involved

Hosting a toy drive is an excellent way of getting children involved in the spirit of giving while educating them to think about the less fortunate.

We’ll supply your school with posters and flyers, along with learning material explaining why we ask for toys. Our team will work with you on setting a donation date, and even organise collection to make giving even easier!

Christmas for kids should be filled with happiness. Barnardos Gifts for Kids Christmas gift appeal aims to ensure Australia’s most vulnerable children don’t go without this festive season. By selecting a gift or donating funds to our Christmas appeal you can make a positive impact to a deserving child during the festive season.
