Every child, regardless of personal and financial circumstances, deserves a special birthday.
NYFS would like to help make that happen!
Parents and Guardians who need gifts for a child's birthday can come select a few new toys and/or books from the Birthday Bin...no questions asked.
Who is eligible?
Everyone! Residents outside of Newtown & Sandy Hook are also welcome!
We're can provide toys and books for children aged 0-14.
When to visit?
The Birthday Bin will be open on the first Friday of the month from 10 - 11:30 am and the third Thursday of the month from 5 - 7:30pm.
If these dates and times do not work for you please contact Daryl Might to make alternate arrangements.
How to arrange a visit?
To avoid overlap and to make this as comfortable as possible for those participating, we are asking for pre-registration.
If you would like to donate to the Birthday Bin...
NEW and UNOPENED toys, books and gift cards for children ages 0-14 can be dropped off at our office.
We are light on gifts for 6, 7 and 8 year olds and we'll also take gift cards for celebration supplies, bakeries, grocery stores, etc.
Donations can be dropped off at NYFS; 15 Berkshire Road, Sandy Hook.
