You Will Need

Pick a charity
Pick a worthy charity to receive the donated toys, such as Toys for Tots, the Salvation Army, the Boys and Girls Club of America or the YMCA.
Focus on an age group
Focus on a specific age group such as infants, kids under 10, or teens and set the parameters of the gifts which should be new and unwrapped.
Advertise the toy drive
Use social networks, the internet, and local businesses to help advertise. Use fliers and posters so that everyone knows when, where, and what to donate.
Tackle transportation and collection
Arrange for transportation and collection of toys from either a single drop-off point or several scattered around.
Set a goal
Set a goal to encourage people to donate and work hard and push your volunteers to meet or exceed that target.
Be active in the toy distribution as a reward for all your hard work. Don't forget to have a good time and thank everyone who helped.
