The Toy Chest is committed to serving KY children by providing toys, books, clothing and other items vital to their healthy development. Our hope is that every child has the essentials in life that allow them to thrive academically and socially. Toys and books take children on adventures of play, make-believe and imagination, inspiring them to dream a dream bigger than their reality!
There are many underserved areas around KY, from inner cities to rural Appalachia. We partner with family resource centers, teachers, social workers and community leaders in identifying service opportunities where our service can have the biggest impact.
We also provide children a platform to serve their peers through service projects. Service provides a sense of community, creating characteristics of leadership, responsibility and gratitude in all who participate.
See Success Stories for more information on some of our service projects.
