Donate to Our Toy Drive for Cambridge Youth!

December 16, 2020

In collaboration with the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House of Cambridge, we’re raising funds and collecting toys to make sure every child in the MFNH community gets a new toy this Christmas. Join us in making this holiday season brighter in our community!

We’re offering two ways to participate in this toy drive. The easier avenue is to donate funds to our Paypal pool, which Lamp staff will then use to purchase toys. Each $25 donation covers one toy. Or, the more fun way to participate is to choose a toy yourself! The step by step instructions for this avenue are below.

The deadline to donate toys or funds is Wednesday, December 16th.

Steps to Donate:

  1. If you wish to donate a toy directly, keep reading. If you wish to donate funds for us to use to buy a toy, skip to step 5.
  2. To donate a toy: Choose a local toy store to purchase from. 
    1. We recommend Henry Bear’s Park in Porter Square because they have an awesome “gift finder” tool, right on their home page!
  3. Choose your toy. 
    1. We’re seeking gifts for kids ages 6-12, of all genders.
  4. Purchase your toy and either 
    1. 1) have it shipped to Lamplighter at 284 Broadway Cambridge, MA 02139 OR 
    2. 2) pick it up and drop it off at Lamp yourself!
  5. To donate funds for us to purchase toys, visit our Paypal pool at this link.
