United for the Holidays

United Way of North Central Florida's "United for the Holidays" is a holiday toy campaign. We are working directly with our impact partners in collecting  toys for their clients ages 18 and under. Toys are slated to be distributed to more than 600 local children during the holiday season. Please refrain from donating violent toys.

Toy donations will be accepted now until December 21, 2017.

Impact Partner Agencies we have teamed up with include:

  • Boys & Girls Club of Alachua County,
  • Catholic Charities,
  • Reichert House,
  • UF Healthy Families,
  • Gainesville Area Community Tennis Association (GACTA), and
  • YMCA

If you would like to donate nonviolence-related toys, please visit one of our public collection sites:
