This year’s UAB Toy Drive has multiple ways to give and multiple ways to celebrate the joy of giving.

For nearly 30 years, the UAB Toy Drive has collected new, unwrapped toys for children in need throughout the Birmingham metro area. Toys are donated to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots campaign and will be collected from Nov. 7 to Dec. 14.

Bring your teddy bears to the UAB Home Basketball game on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 1pm for a teddy bear toss!

This year, you can also drop off toys at collection boxes around campus, or purchase a toy from one of our wish lists:

You can also mail toys to:

UAB Toy Drive
506 10th St. South
CEC 203
Birmingham, AL 35233

In addition to inviting Santa Claus to Cudworth Hall for the final pickup day on Dec. 14, UAB IT will host photos with Santa in front of the TechConnect store at the Hill Student Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 30. Students and employees are welcome to attend.

Please note that Toys for Tots does not accept donations of clothing, food or realistic-looking weapons. Toys are accepted for children up to age 16.
