Toy Drive/Holiday Assistance

Approximately 3,000 families will benefit from visiting HELP of Southern Nevada's toy store and over 19,000 children in our community benefit from the Toy drive itself. This has become a signature event for individuals and companies to donate new toys for kids in our community.

Pre-qualified families benefit from the generosity of local residents. During toy distribution, a member of the pre-qualified family arrives at an assigned time to visit the HELP toy store; and is escorted through the toy store to pick out gifts for their children.
