Dr. Alexandra S. George DDS’s Annual Toy Drive

We’re excited to get a head start on our collections and begin the Toy Drive on Monday, October 23rd!

We are hosting our annual toy drive this holiday season for the Weirton Christian Center! Last year, we received so many generous donations benefiting the children in the Weirton community and are looking forward to spreading more joy to them this year. 

Dr. Alex grew up in Weirton and has some incredible memories of the people in the community. Since the steel mills have reduced their workforce, the community has been impacted, and the Weirton Christian Center works hard to make the holidays a little extra special for deserving kids they serve. 

The Benefits of Play

Play is an integral part of a child’s life, allowing them to spark their imagination and creativity. Children use play to understand the world around them and, most importantly, play is meant to be fun and help a child simply be a child. 

Unfortunately, many families aren’t able to afford toys and their children don’t have access to age-appropriate toys that can help them with learning and development. Toy donations are a great way to help families give their children toys they aren’t able to afford otherwise. 

Where to Find Quality Toys

Dr. Alexandra S. George DDS and the Pittsburgh Dentist team like to support the community and buy from other local businesses. If you’re local to Pittsburgh, you are likely familiar with S.W. Randall Toyes and Gifts, one of Pittsburgh’s oldest and largest specialty toy stores, originally established in 1970. Two years ago, Dr. Alex and team went down to the toy store and picked out hundreds of gifts to add to the collection. It was a fun and fulfilling experience to know that a child will get to open their new gift on Christmas Day!

Other local toy stores to support include:

We have also put together an Amazon Wishlist that will be sent to the office for convenience:

How to Get Involved

We are taking new or unused toys for Kindergarten through Grade 11:

  • STEM toys
  • Legos
  • Barbies
  • Puzzles
  • Games

Please bring your donations to our office located at 181 Wexford-Bayne Road – Suite 200 before the first week of December. 

This organization is so near and dear to our hearts, and we’d be so grateful for your help in supporting our toy drive. We want to go above and beyond for an organization that changes the lives of the Weirton community. Thank you for your continued support – your generosity is greatly appreciated and will go a long way for families in need!
