Fourth Annual Toys of Joy Toy Drive

‘Tis the season to kick off the Fourth Annual Toys of Joy Toy Drive. This year, Friends of JJ, a 501c3 nonprofit organization based out of Lincroft, will be delivering joy to more than 20 hospitals across New Jersey and New York. Friends of JJ enriches the lives of children and families affected by pediatric disease. During the holiday season, they focus on the families that will be spending their holiday time in the hospital. On December 20, they will host a Toys of Joy pop-up shop at St. Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick. This is an annual event where the patients and families can shop for presents for their entire family right in the child life play room. Patients and their parents have the opportunity to choose from hundreds of gifts and toys that they can give to their loved ones.

If you would like to support Friends of JJ and their Toys of Joy Toy Drive, please visit their website at to make an online donation, find a local donation box, or purchase a toy online from their Amazon Wish List to be delivered right to Friends of JJ. If you know a business, organization, or school that would like to run their own Toys of Joy Toy Drive, please contact
