Spread Christmas Cheer by Donating to Our Toys for Tots Campaign

Spread Christmas Cheer by Donating to Our Toys for Tots Campaign

Pearsons Funeral Home considers it an honor to belong to the Louisville community. We take pride in giving back to the neighborhoods which have allowed our families to serve them for generations. That's why we've teamed up with Toys for Tots to serve as a drop-off point for this wonderful organization. 

Light up a Child’s Christmas

Please drop off a new, unwrapped toys at our 149 Breckenridge Lane location, and we’ll make sure each donation is given to a child in need in time for the holidays.   

Toys for Tots follows a simple, time-honored system. Individuals drop off new, unwrapped toys at collection points, such as Pearsons Funeral Home in the Louisville area. Next, Toys for Tots coordinators deliver the donations to a central location where they are sorted into groups according to the age and gender of the children who will receive them.

As the collections are happening, volunteers at places of worship, local nonprofits and social welfare agencies are busy finalizing lists of children in less-fortunate families in each community. At the holiday, volunteers make sure each child in need receives his or her toys, and all of it is made possible through your donations of toys or money.

Please drop off a new, unwrapped toys at our 149 Breckenridge Lane location, and we’ll make sure each donation is given to a child in need in time for the holidays.

About Toys for Tots

Pearsons has chosen to partner with the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program because of its sterling reputation in the 50 states and 700 communities it serves. The 501(c)(3) charity’s local campaigns are each organized either at Marine reserve centers or by veteran Marines.

For the last 15 years, Toys for Tots has achieved a remarkable service -to- expense ratio of  97 to 3. That means that for every dollar you contribute, only three pennies go to operational needs. 

Toys for Tots has appeared on the Philanthropy 400 list of top-rated charities every year since 2001. Charity Navigators has given Toys for Tots a 4-Star rating. The highest possible designation, 4-star is defined as “Exceptional: Exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in its cause.” The organization also meets the 20 standards established by Better Business Bureau’s WiseGiving Alliance.

Other Ways to Help

If you’re unable to drop a new toy off at Pearsons, there are still other ways you can help the Toys for Tots effort this year. Here's how: 

  • Visit the Toys for Tots website to learn how to donate financially online, or get involved in fun activities like hosting a toy party or even partnering with eBay.
  • Help families in need sign up for Toys for Tots. If you’re unsure about whether to approach the family directly, the program has ways in which you can let Toys for Tots know about the family most in need of gifts.
