Each year, on December 15th, The Live a Yes Foundation hosts our biggest toy drive and fundraiser, known lovingly throughout the community as Lily’s Toy Drive. Over the past 7 years, over 20,000 toys have been collected. Lily’s Toy Drive is the largest provider of toys, arts, crafts and gift cards for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and sustains their needs throughout the whole year. In the past, individuals, schools and businesses have signed on as Santa Stops, to assist in toy collection leading up to the actual event; local vendors and artists participated in our Holiday Shop and the night culminated in the lighting of the tree in Vickery Village.
This year, Lily’s Toys will look a little different.
As we strive to be mindful of the current situation, observe social distancing protocols and ensure we are protecting our most vulnerable friends, The Live a Yes Foundation is partnering with CHOA for the 1st Annual Holiday Shop at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite Holiday Shop on December 23rd and 24th.
In place of our annual physical toy drive, the Live a Yes Foundation, along with our generous donors and sponsors will stock the shelves of the Holiday Shop through an Amazon Wish List. This will give parents of patients hospitalized during Christmas the opportunity to shop for their children in the hospital with specially selected items. These gifts will be wrapped and delivered to their rooms on Christmas morning!
Make the holidays a little brighter for our CHOA families and shop the Holiday Shop or make a financial contribution to the Live a Yes Foundation!
