Toy Drive

2018 marks our 16th Annual Toy Drive

Want to give back in a small but powerful way to children during this holiday season? Buy a toy on their wishlist!

NAAAP-Chicago has provided toys for hundreds of children in the Chicago-land community thanks to donors and volunteers. Please help us keep this tradition alive – join NAAAP-Chicago and help us put smiles on children’s faces again this holiday season. This toy drive is the only time many underprivileged children will receive a new toy. For the average cost of a meal, you can make a child’s holiday wish come true. Help spread the holiday cheer to as many children as possible!

2018 application deadline has now passed.

NAAAP-Chicago is a volunteer-driven organization

Through service, we hope to promote volunteerism and to develop awareness of philanthropic giving.  In addition to our own community programs we actively participate in volunteer projects at various Chicago-land nonprofit organizations that address needs in the community, especially those in Asian American communities.
