Polk County Toys for Tots 2018 Campaign Announces December 15, 2018 Toy Distribution Information


Families who have been approved for toys through the Polk County Toys for Tots application process will receive their toys at distribution locations around Polk County. Between October 1, 2018 and November 15, 2018, Polk County families were able to apply for toys online. The applications were reviewed and approved. Volunteers working in our Auburndale warehouse “shopped” for the toys. After packaging, the bags of toys were readied for movement to our distribution sites.

Families scheduled to receive toys have been contacted by emails with the location of their individual distribution site. The 15 sites are scattered around Polk County and are separated by zip codes supplied by the families. The families must go to their scheduled distribution site for their toys. Families are encouraged to not bring children to the distribution sites.

Families must bring documentation to the distribution site. The documents include:

Parent / Guardian and child must be a CURRENT Polk County Resident.
Child(ren) must be between 0 to 13 years of age.
Parent / Guardian must be able to prove they are currently receiving Medicaid, food assistance (SNAP or WIC), or cash assistance (TANF).  If the parent / guardian has recently become unemployed, proof must be provided.

Volunteers have been working to complete the orders for over 11,365 children across Polk County. The Program is asking for patience at all the distribution sites. Volunteers are needed at sites. Members of the community wishing to volunteer at the distributions should email us at [email protected].
