Children's Day is here!

Yipppeeee Children's Day is round the corner and Toybank is back with a lot of events in Pune and Mumbai!

Mumbai:
  • On November 2nd, 3rd and 4th we had 3 non stop distributions with 200 children from 3 different NGOs: Door Step School, Seva Sadan and Sharanam Girls Home at Dharavi.
  • Toybank and TCS Mumbai have come together to organize a huge toy distribution event with 350 kids from Milind Vidhyalaya on Children's Day in Mumbai! TCS had also organized a toy collection drive last month for Toybank!
Pune:
  • A toy collection drive was organized in Konark Campus, Viman Nagar on 8th Nov and we received 7-8 poly bags of toys! We thank all our Toy donors!
  • A toy wrapping event has been organized on 14th Nov in Camelot, Viman Nagar.
  • The toys collected from the drive will be distributed in the next week to kids from Matoshri School in Yerawada which is run by Akanksha with the help of PMC and Thermax.
  • Sharad Pawar International School has offered to help us by doing a toy collection drive in their school. The kids will be donating their toys all through this week and have shown interest in joining us for distribution events! This encourages us to achieve one of Toybank's goals - to bridge the gap between children from different backgrounds through play and distribution events.
We would need many volunteers for all these events. If you are interested to volunteer with Toybank drop us an email!
