Very often, the holiday spirit of giving is in our hearts, but it can be difficult to know when, where, and how we can help others in need at this time of year. With that in mind, Oz Moving has put together a map of locations where you can drop off new, unwrapped toys and gifts for children who are less fortunate. They have researched and mapped several reputable charitable organizations to help these gifts reach their destinations.
With a few good helpers from New York City and the surrounding areas we can deliver a little bit of holiday happiness to those less fortunate. If you’re interested in helping make someone’s holiday a whole lot happier, please take a look at the map below and find out where you can make your donation.
Toys for Tots is collecting toys to donate to less fortunate children throughout New York City this holiday season. Oz Moving has partnered with Toys for Tots to create an interactive map of NYC that lists toy drop off locations in the NYC metro area. Our goal is to make it easier for people that are looking to donate toys, and find the closest drop off location to them.

What can I donate?
Not sure what to donate to children in need this holiday season? New, warm weather coats are always welcome, as are new, unwrapped toys that are age appropriate. Plastic rings, toy telephones, and onesis make great gifts for babies and toddlers. Preschool and school-age children may be delighted by dolls, action figures, and toys that foster their creative side like Legos, puppets, and drawing/interactive toys. For teens and pre-teens, consider donating electronics items such as game systems and games, CDs, or athletic equipment and gear.
