Twelfth Annual Toy Drive
The holidays are here, and The Josie Foundation is holding its 12th Annual Toy Drive. Last year we collected nearly 300 toys and distributed them to Children's Hospital of St. Louis and Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center. Please join us in making this year another great success! Your donations will make a tremendous difference in the lives of many children and their families, and your support is truly appreciated.

Please note that toys should be new and not giftwrapped.  If you can’t find a drop box, please contact us and we’ll be happy to direct you to one.
