Give the gift of happiness

to hundreds of children living in shelter

2nd Annual Toy Drive

November 14th to December 14th

At Way Finders, we manage emergency shelters to house homeless families throughout Western Massachusetts. Many of these families are there due to no fault of their own and are experiencing unfortunate circumstances like job loss, fires, domestic violence, and more. Some stay in shelter for a few months and others for years. We understand that it is a struggle to find affordable housing, especially when you have a large family.

At our shelters alone, we provide housing to over 600 children ranging from all ages who are in need of more normalcy in their lives. For the past two years we have held a Toy Drive to provide families in shelter with gifts that they can give to their children and see a smile on their face. 

With your help, we can collect enough toys so that every child living in shelter receives at least one toy this holiday season.
