The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Adapted toys are displayed as part of our annual adapted toy giveaway, where agencies come and select adapted toys for free to use with children with disabilities.
RePlay for KidsToy Donation Program
RePlay for Kids takes new or 'gently-used' battery-operated toys and has volunteers adapt these toys so that children with disabilities can use a switch to activate the toys. These toys are given at no charge to children with disabilities in Northeast Ohio.
Do you have new or 'gently-used' toys that you would like to donate to a good cause? Donate them to RePlay for Kidsand we'll adapt the toys and give them to children with disabilities. See the "Toy Donation Suggestions" below.
Do you want to help RePlay for Kids but can't attend a workshop? Host a RePlay for Kids Toy Drive to collect toys for RePlay for Kids to adapt. See the "RePlay for Kids Toy Drive Tips" below.
