Spirit of the Holidays

All aboard! Be the conductor for New Jersey children this holiday season

Each year, our local community helps us bring joy to thousands of children served by Acenda through this cheerful and empowering program. Acenda will be collecting toys through Friday, December 8, 2023.
To make things simpler for our amazing donors, we are asking for gifts to be purchased online and have them shipped to our Glassboro headquarters.
We have set up shopping registries that are available online at Amazon, Target, and Walmart to allow you to easily contribute to the awe and wonder of the holiday season for our families. Donations of gift cards are also welcomed and will be used to purchase gifts for various age groups. All monetary donations will service both our Spirit of the Holidays toy collection and Acenda programs.


Local businesses are encouraged to invite customers, staff, patients, and clients to join in supporting Acenda by hosting a toy collection. We will provide marketing materials, signage, and a collection box to support your efforts.
We are also accepting new, unwrapped toys at our Glassboro Headquarters.
Contact Stephanie Taylor, Communications and Special Events Coordinator, to coordinate a specific date and time.
