Amazing! City's Biggest Toy Giveaway

There are toy drives and then there's Play It Forward Pittsburgh's toy drive. This event is so big and collects so many toys, it has to be held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center!


Sparkt is spending the month of December letting you know about some of the coolest local volunteer opportunities we've found, so you can give back a little of yourself this holiday season.

There are toy drives and then there's Play It Forward Pittsburgh's toy drive. This event is so big and collects so many toys, it has to be held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center!

Hundreds of volunteers are needed to sort, categorize and display the items, from games, to toys to stuffed animals, so families can go "shopping" for their favorites. From December 10th through the 12th, volunteers help people unload their donations at the Convention Center and organize the donations by item and category. Then on on December 17th, the actual day of shopping, volunteers will assist the families with their shopping experience.

Sign up to volunteer on the Play It Forward site . There you'll also find a detailed description of what is expected from volunteers and even directions and parking suggestions.
