Hope for the Holidays Toy Drive

Since 2009, 911 Gives Hope for The Holidays has brought comfort and joy to children spending the holidays in local Hospitals. Over the years, the generous spirit of Tri-State residents has filled semi-trailer trucks, that have been distributed to Deaconess, Deaconess Gateway, St. Mary’s, Methodist Henderson, Evansville Ronald McDonald House, and the State Children’s Hospital in Evansville.

Every holiday season, for three days, police officers, firefighters, and medics camp out at the Evansville Wal-Mart East parking lot to collect toys.  Indispensable support is provided by Town Square Media,  Henderson Chevrolet, and Walmart.

Cedar Hall student adds to 911 Gives Hope drive

The record haul from this year's 911 Gives Hope toy drive got even bigger, thanks to a donation from a hard-working Cedar Hall Community School student.

Last year was our biggest year when we filled 138 Keep Evansville Beautiful boxes to donate to local medical facilities, this year we filled over 200! Special thanks to Henderson Chevrolet, Townsquare Media, our first responders and everyone of you who came out and donated (time and/or money).
