Donations for Christmas Toydrive Welcomed

15/11/2019

AMS are proud to again be participating in this year’s Christmas Toydrive which will run between 1st November—30th November.

Donations of toys for boys and girls aged between 0-18 will be collected and then distributed to Children and Families in need.

Donations can be dropped off at the AMS offices (Cupar Muir Industrial Estate, Cupar Muir, Fife, KY15 5RL) Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm up until the 30th of November. 

No matter how big or small your support – it is very much appreciated.

What is the Toy Drive?

The Toy Drive was set up in 2013 with the support of the local Children & Families Team in order to distribute gifts to families in need at Christmas.

Every single gift donated in the North East of Fife, stays in the North East of Fife. Donations are organised into age order and suitability before being matched with a child or family. The toys are then made available to the referrer who in turn distributes them to the family they have referred.

How does it work?

The Toy Drive has arranged for locations across North East of Fife (including AMS) to act as COLLECTION POINTS during the event. Simply donate the gift to us and we will store it until the event is finished. Volunteers will then organise the toys and match them with referrals.

What area does the Toy Drive cover?

The Toy Drive covers the North East of Fife and includes Falkland, the Tay Bridge Head, St Andrews, East Neuk, Cupar and everywhere else in-between.

When is the Event running?

The Toy Drive runs from 1st November to the 30th of November. This allows enough time for volunteers to organise the gifts and redistribute them to the children in time for Christmas. Please note that Referrals can still be made out with these dates.

What do the children receive?

Although we are dependent on the donations we receive, we endeavour to ensure that every child receives at least; 1 gift, 1 ‘stocking filler’ gift, a selection box (if over 12 months old) and 1 book.

What can I donate?

The Toy Drive accepts toys and gifts suitable for boys and girls aged 0-18. The gifts must be NEW & UNUSED and in pristine condition. Please do not wrap the gifts
