CaringKids Toy Boxes

CaringKids Toy Boxes

Play time is an essential part of childhood development. It provides the building blocks for learning and helps kids develop patience, resilience and problem-solving skills. CaringKids recognises this, and ensures every Toy Box we deliver to a child contains toys, puzzles and games that not only bring joy, but also help them to learn and grow.

Information about toy donations and donation locations can be found here.
