Seeking Locations for Toys for Toga Campaign

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Discover Saratoga, DeCrescente Distributing Company, Druthers Brewing Company, Death Wish Coffee, and Quick Response have partnered to initiate the 8th Annual Toys for Toga campaign, in conjunction with the 15th Annual Discover Saratoga Restaurant Week, Oct. 30 – Nov. 8. 

The organizations have released the following information:  We’d love to have our members participate in this great cause! Here’s how it will work: Participating businesses will place a Toys for Toga cardboard box in or around their business. The logoed cardboard box is 18 X 18 X 30 and will be delivered to you. Starting Oct. 30 through Dec. 4, members of the local community can donate new, unwrapped toys at participating locations. People will know who is participating because there will be a list on our Restaurant Week webpage.

Toy boxes will be collected the week of Dec. 7. Toys will be sanitized by Quick Response and equally distributed to Franklin Community Center (Saratoga Springs), CAPTAIN Youth and Family Services (Clifton Park) and the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center (Mechanicville) in time for the holidays.

If you would like to participate in Toys for Toga and have a box delivered to your business, please contact Vinnie Morrissey at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
