Holiday Drive Seeks Gift Card and New Toy Donations

Contributions Accepted Until Dec. 14

Rockville, Maryland, Nov. 28 — It’s the season of giving and there’s still time to help Rockville’s less fortunate with a donation to the 2017 Holiday Drive. And there’s no better time than today, on Giving Tuesday.

Giving Tuesday is an international day of giving that serves as the kick-off for the charitable season.

On Saturday, Nov. 18, the Holiday Drive distributed over 400 Thanksgiving meals to Rockville families and seniors in need. One-hundred and seventy-four volunteers contributed nearly 350 hours to bag produce, sort canned food, and pack meals.

The Holiday Drive is now accepting donations of new, unwrapped toys and $20 Target gift cards to brighten the December holidays for your neighbors in Rockville.

Here are some other ways to help:

  • Send a tax-deductible contribution (checks can be made payable to Rockville Holiday Drive Fund, and sent to 111 Maryland Ave., Rockville, MD 20850.) Donations help Rockville buy toys and gifts to supplement in-kind contributions.
  • Organize a toy or book drive to collect new unwrapped toys or books (new books for children of all ages, including teenagers, are needed).

You can donate toys at City Hall and city recreation facilities until Thursday, Dec. 14.

For more on Giving Tuesday, visit www.givingtuesday.org. To learn more about the Holiday Drive and find a list of holiday gift items needed, visit www.rockvillemd.gov/holidaydrive.
