It’s Time For The Porter-Leath Toy Truck Drive!

Spread Cheer for Mid-South Preschoolers This Holiday Season

During the holidays, you and your family might have some special traditions.

One of ours is ensuring that every student in Porter-Leath’s Preschool program receives a meaningful gift this holiday season. We’re once again proud to be a title sponsor of Porter-Leath’s Toy Truck, and need your help in ensuring that every child receives a gift each holiday season.

Our Goal

We’re hoping to receive over 5900 gifts this year. We’ve been able to ensure that every child receives a gift, and are hoping you can help us reach this number!

How You Can Help

Toy Truck Boxes

1) Donation Boxes

We’ve made it easy for you to get involved. Simply fill out the form at the bottom of this page, and your Yuletide delivery driver will bring a box right to your door, along with a flyer to put in front of it. We’ll come back for your donations between December 5-7.

Please ensure that any toys that are donated are new and unwrapped. Here are a few ideas, suggested by Porter-Leath:

  • Dolls
  • Balls
  • Education toys (for ages 0-5)
  • Play kitchens, grills and workshops
  • Preschool games
  • Toy trucks
  • Bicycles

Please avoid donating toy weapons, games with dice or play money, or stuffed animals. Also, toys with smaller parts are also not recommended as the children receiving these gifts are under the age of five.

If you miss donating before pickup, or don’t have enough staff for a box, you can also make donations at the following locations:

Poplar/Perkins

4615 Poplar Ave., Memphis
December 5-8, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

WMC-TV

1960 Union Ave., Memphis
December 14,15 |  8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

2) “Secret Santa” Monetary Gifts

If you do not have the time to shop, you can send in a monetary donation. The “Secret Santa” will match every donation made dollar-to-dollar. (i.e. if you donate $20, your donation will be $40.) Donations can be sent to the following address:
