Holiday Toy Drive

We will regift your gently-used toys directly to refugee and immigrant children in need! 

Girl with toy donationsCleaning out your kids’ rooms before the holidays? Looking for a way for your kids to give as they receive? A refugee or immigrant child would love to receive your gently-loved toys, books, stuffed animals, and art supplies!

The International Institute of Minnesota is expanding its toy-gifting program by collecting even more gently-used (or new) toys to regift during the holidays to children ages 0-18 who are starting a new life in Minnesota.

We will accept donations Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Please note that we will be closed Thursday, November 26 and Friday, November 27th for Thanksgiving. Our office is located at:

1694 Como Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55108

If you would like to spread the holiday love a little further, please consider making a cash donation as well. Any amount is appreciated and will fund the programming that helps these children’s parents become self-sufficient.

*UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who made our holiday toy drive a success! We are no longer able to accept toy donations as of March 1, 2016. Thank you again for brightening the lives of refugee children.
