Christmas Toy Drive

Christmas Toy Drive

Donate new and unwrapped toys to the Forrest Spence Fund December 1-12 so we can make sure the children of Memphis (plus their siblings and caregivers) who are hospitalized over Christmas receive gifts.  Click this link to see our wish list.  

Please drop off or mail the toys/gift cards to:

Independent Presbyterian Church
c/o Forrest Spence Fund/Christmas Drive
4738 Walnut Grove Road
Memphis, TN 38117

If you are dropping off than please enter Independent Presbyterian Church at the front entrance (faces Walnut Grove) and leave them in a wrapped christmas box marked Forrest Spence Fund Christmas Toy Drive.  

If you are mailing them than please make sure the box/package is clearly marked with the address above.  

Unwrapped Gifts and Links

We will wrap all gifts so please keep them unwrapped.  

At the top of the wish list is a link to our Smile.Amazon wishlist with examples of gifts to purchase for each age group if you would like to go that route.  When linking to, please mark the Forrest Spence Fund as the non-profit you would like to give back to and we will receive a percentage of every purchase made.  

Here are links to purchase gift cards for the caregivers. Target ($25) and Kroger ($25) 

Wrapping Volunteers

We are in need of volunteers to help wrap over 1500 Christmas gifts.  We will provide all the supplies, we just need the volunteers to do the wrapping.
