Annual Toy Drive

Encounter With Christ’s holds an annual toy drive every December. Over 2,000 new toys have been collected and distributed annually for 35 years and 3,000 – 4,000 each holiday season from 2012 – 2015.

36th Annual Toy and Donation Drive

Sponsored by: Encounter With Christ

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation since 1972

Our thanks go to the management of numerous Shopping centers and Department stores in OH, NJ, NY and PA where students and staff are situated before Christmas as “Living” Toy Drops (a representative is always present). We so appreciate the generosity of the donors who extend themselves to make this year’s Drive a fruitful one.


On behalf of families in need new toy donations are received and toy requests are taken. Over 2,000 new toys have been collected and distributed annually for 35 years and 3,000 – 4,000 each holiday season from 2012 – 2015.  Each family’s bag of toys contains a Bible in Spanish or English (as per the family’s requested preference).

In addition to new toy donations each worker can accept monetary contributions to help support service in an orphanage each summer as well as Bible-based instruction and counseling for students. Encounter With Christ’s team served in orphanages in Costa Rica from 2014-2016 and will head there again in 2017. Past foreign mission teams served in Belize, Puerto Rico, Chile, Argentina, Mexico, England, France, Spain, Norway or Taiwan. Domestic outreach continues annually through campus ministry at Ohio State University and the Toy Drive in OH, NJ, NY and PA. Our sincerest thanks to you for any help that you may be able to give monetarily for the ministry or by bringing a new toy.
