We begin packing in November. There is no deadline, but the earlier you are able to donate, the better. Donations received after we finish packing in December will be held in storage to help us build inventory for the following season. Donations are greatly needed and deeply appreciated all year long as we must build our inventory continuously in order to meet our needs. Please help us fulfill our needs by planning and donating early. All items must be newly purchased and in original packaging.

Thank you from the bottom of more than 1,700 little hearts!
