UNITED WAY HOLIDAY PROJECT

UWHP web image

The goal of the United Way Holiday Project is to ensure every child has a toy underneath the tree.

United Way of Martin County is the local coordinating organization for Toys for Tots. For 35 years, United Way has spread holiday cheer by providing toys and holiday meals to more than 1,000 local families and 3,000 children each year through the United Way Holiday Project (formerly known as White Doves Holiday Project). But we can't do it alone.  This huge undertaking is only possible by pooling the resources of hundreds of volunteers, community groups, agencies, families, businesses and faith-based and civic organizations.

Whether you give a toy, give your time or give your treasure, you can play a huge role in making the holidays special for local families who are struggling to make ends meet.

Does your business or civic group want to spread holiday cheer? Become a Toys for Tots Collection Site! We're updating our box drop locations on the website and YOU could be listed as a Martin County organization that supports families this holiday season. Click here for a tutorial

Shop from the comfort of your own home through our Amazon Wish List. 

GIVE YOUR TIME

We're looking for a few volunteer elves to transform the Martin County Fairgrounds into Santa's Workshop.

The gifts that are collected from Toys for Tots Collection Sites will be sorted and categorized for families who will select toys for their children during a two-day distribution event. Families also receive a turkey and bag of groceries to make a traditional holiday meal. Volunteer positions include parking attendant, shopper, restocker and more!

GIVE YOUR TREASURE

Financial resources are also critical to making holiday dreams come true for local families in need.

HOW IT WORKS

REFERRAL PROCESS

Families are referred to the United Way Holiday Project by social service agencies, schools and faith-based groups – organizations who know the families intimately and understand their needs. The names of the families are then matched with other holiday providers to avoid the duplication of services.  

TOY COLLECTION

As the official local coordinating organization for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots drive, United Way of Martin County works with hundreds of local businesses who serve as Toys for Tots Collection Sites. Any toys donated to Toys for Tots in Martin County go toward this community-wide effort.

DISTRIBUTION

With help from hundreds of volunteer "elves" the Martin County Fairgrounds will be transformed into Santa's Workshop. The gifts that are collected from Toys for Tots Collection Sites will be sorted and categorized for families who will select toys for their children during a two-day distribution event.  Families also receive a turkey and bag of groceries to make a traditional holiday meal.
