Toys for Tots
Together we can give local children in need
a wonderful holiday!
How to register your child
You must live within the Deposit school district.
Be prepared to provide ID and proof of residency, if asked.
The child must live with you, and be in your care.
They must be 16 years of age or younger.
We will ask you for your contact information and
The child's name
Three gifts/interests, the total of which equaling no more than $35.
To register your child call our office at 607-467-4000, or stop in during our office hours, from November 2, 2021 to November 30, 2021
Picking up Gifts
Pick up date December 11, 2021
You must pick up your gifts! If someone else comes on your behalf, you must call us to let is know, and give them a written note saying that they have permission to collect the gifts.
If for whatever reason you cannot make it, and have no one else, call us at least one day before the gift pick up, and we can make arrangements. If you simply fail to show up, your gifts will be forfeited! We do not want your children to go without gifts, so please call us if there is an issue.
Adopt a child or family
Individuals and businesses can adopt a registered family and be the sole provider of gifts for those children.
You can register by calling our office at 607-4674000 on Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except from noon to 1:00 when we're at lunch, or stop in during our office hours.
Once family registration is in November, we will call you and give the following information:
We will tell you the child's:
What kind of gifts they want
We try to be fair to all registered children. Ideally, each child will have no more than three gifts, the total value of which equals no more than $30-$40 depending on our budget. We understand that you would like to be generous in the spirit of the holidays, but please do not be excessive. If you wish, you can adopt more than one family.
Once your shopping is done, put the gifts in a box or bag with the child's registration number clearly visible, and drop it off at the Deposit Foundation office.
You can donate brand new toys anytime of the year.
Please no stuffed animals, as they spread germs easily.
Please bring your donations to
the Deposit Foundation office located on
146 Front Street, Suite 102
During November there will be collection bins at
NBT Bank, and other local stores.
You can also donate money for purchase of gifts.
Cash is accepted, and if you wish to write a check,
make it payable to the Deposit Foundation Inc.
with Toys for Tots in the memo.
If you would like to spreed some holiday cheer, call us today to volunteer!
Volunteers help shop for, sort and/or distribute the gifts.
We manage the local Toys for Tots program for Deposit. We take care of monetary and gift donations, and coordinate distribution of toys and gifts to local children and teens in need during the holidays.
Registration begins November 2020.
