Since 2009, Car-Mart has collected thousands of children’s toys from children’s hospitals. This year, Car-Mart’s goal is to collect 25,000 toys to share with 25 hospitals in the Car-Mart 12-state area. [See the list of hospitals below]. In 2020, Car-Mart collected more than 11,000 toys for 15 children’s hospitals.
“We are delighted to be conducting our annual toy drive again this year. At Car-Mart, we’ll all be working hard to make this our biggest holiday toy drive in our history and to make this the brightest season yet for kids who vacation in hospital. Said Jeff Williams, President and CEO. “This time of year it’s all about giving and helping bring the holiday joy to so many deserving children.
“It’s so hard to be a kid in the hospital on vacation. This is the main reason why these toy drives are so important. Children know the community is coming together around them, ”says Rebecca Neely, Development Officer, Arkansas Children’s Foundation. “In 2020, our hospital raised over $ 300,000 in toys and donations. It gets bigger and better every year. America’s Car-Mart has been the biggest toy donor for the past two years. It’s amazing to see the support from the company and its customers. It’s so amazing to see everyone rallying around our patients and their families.
Car-Mart will serve as a toy donation destination in its communities. The company invites anyone (no purchase necessary) to donate new, unwrapped toys as part of its holiday toy drive. Toys can be dropped off Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at any America’s Car-Mart.
“Every toy will make a difference, and we are grateful for the opportunity to help ensure that children who need to be hospitalized during the holidays enjoy the magic of the holidays. For November and December, this is the most important thing we can do at America’s Car-Mart, ”said Leon Walthall, COO.
