The Toy Box Connection is a non-for-profit organization located in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. We provide toys/books to children in need and we are the missing link in our community. Our primary goal is to touch the life of a child with a toy/book no matter the season, because need has no season. How we operate is, we accept new and gently used toys, redistribute the toys/books to help support other non-for-profits.

*Mooseheart Orphanage
