Virtual Holiday Toy Drive
The holidays are a great time to think about ways to give back. We invite you to join CASA of Travis County's Virtual Holiday Toy Drive and provide a little cheer to a child in foster care.
In 2019, generous community members provided over 1,000 gifts and $30 gift cards to children who have been abused or neglected. What might seem like such a simple act truly makes a difference in a child’s life.
This year, our 2020 Holiday Toy Drive will be completely virtual, and we will be collecting $30 gift cards.
Will children be getting a gift card or an actual gift? Great question! Collected gift cards will be distributed to our CASA staff and volunteers who will then purchase, wrap, and deliver gifts in a safe manner. We too will miss toy drives of holidays past, but we hope you’re excited about spreading some much-needed holiday cheer to our community’s most vulnerable children!
Our goal: Collect 1,100 $30 gift cards by Nov. 1st

Let’s keep the momentum going!
I’m with an organization. Can I forward the toy drive information to my coworkers and let them donate as an individual? Alternatively, is it ok if we have a point person who collects everyone’s money and submits it as a single donation?
Yes to both options – whichever method works best for you and your team. Thank you for spreading the news!
I submitted a pledge to donate. Should I go ahead and donate or wait to be contacted?
Please feel free to honor your pledge via our toy drive donation form [link]. Otherwise, a staff member will be in touch soon. Thank you for pledging!
I have other questions. Who can I contact?
Please contact Catherine Covington, firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-539-2643.
