Springboard Media Toy Drive

Springboard Media’s Annual Toy Drive

The holidays are an amazing time to spend with family and friends, but it is also an ideal time to give back to those less fortunate. This holiday season, we are partnering with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to help provide toys, activities, and books to the thousands of children that visit their facilities every year.

The Toy Drive will be held in both our Center City Headquarters and our Exton Retail Store. Our headquarters drive will primarily include employee donations, but our Exton-based drive is open to the public! Beginning Friday, November 30th and ending Sunday, December, 16th, stop by our store anytime to donate a toy to a little one in need.

Give, and we Give Back!

In the spirit of giving back, Springboard is offering $50 off any NEW or PREOWNED Mac with a toy donation. Just bring at least one approved gift and you are qualified. Get into the holiday spirit and give back today!

How do you participate?

Bring a toy or toys to our Exton location. Make sure the gift is UNWRAPPED. As long as the toy is unwrapped and an approved toy, then that’s all there is to it!
