City and Community Engagement, in collaboration with the Latinx Student Cultural Center, is thrilled to announce the commencement of our annual toy drive, beginning on November 20, 2023. We invite you to be part of this heartwarming initiative that promises to impact the lives of children and families within our community.

Our Mission:

The Northeastern University Annual Community Holiday Toy Drive goes beyond being a tradition; it celebrates community, generosity, and the joy of giving. Our mission is simple yet profoundly impactful: to ensure every child experiences the magic of the holiday season, regardless of their circumstances.

Toy Requirements:

  • Age-Appropriate: We kindly request new or unopened toys suitable for children aged infant to 15.

  • Unwrapped: Please leave toys unwrapped.

How to Donate:
