Holiday Toy Drive

November 28 - December 5, 2022

The Paris Johnson Jr. Foundation will launch its annual Toy Drive on Monday, November 28, 2022.  Partners in this initiative include Giant Eagle, Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet and Hometeam Properties, who will have bins located on site from November 28, 2022 thru December 5, 2022.  Paris Johnson Jr. will appear at the Giant Eagle Market District in Grandview from 4pm – 5pm on December 5th, where fans who donate toys can get a picture taken with Paris.  This inaugural event is a continuation of a series of planned holiday events as part of the Foundation’s Annual Winter Giving Campaign.

The goal of the Toy Drive is to provide holiday cheer to both Veteran and underserved families in our community. With the help of many individuals and companies like Giant Eagle, Hometeam Properties, and Mark Wahlberg Chevrolet, The Paris Johnson Jr. Foundation aims to collect new toys, which will be distributed by the Dream Center to the families in need
