Toybank Bangalore wraps them up!


After reaching out to children from Good Neighbors India in Aug to celebrate our 6th anniversary, our Bangalore volunteers met up on 26th Sept to wrap the toys donated by Walt Disney's 'Donate a Toy, Spread some Joy' campaign which happened in July.

A couple of years ago Mr. Gopakumar of Navgati had written to us offering help with space for our toy inventory. Back in 2007-08 Toybank Bangalore had just started its operations and collection drives mostly happened at Corporates. So we did not require a toy inventory. Over the last 3 years our individual toy donors in Bangalore have gradually increased and we had started receiving a lot of requests asking us where to drop the toys. We went back to Gopakumar and he was happy to help us :)


Navgati's office helped us store toys sent by Disney and all our volunteers went there to wrap them up. Volunteers segregated and wrapped toys for 4 NGOs in Bangalore. We will bring you more news on that soon. Watch this space!

We thank Navgati and Mr.Gopakumar for their generosity and we thank all the volunteers for their awesome effort wrapping the toys!
