Holiday Toy Drive

Date/Time

Nov 29, 2019 to Dec 22, 2019
10:00 AM until 05:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).

Description

One in 28 American kids has a parent behind bars. In Pennsylvania alone, there are approximately 81,096 children with a parent incarcerated in a PA state prison. How can we come together as a community to support families experiencing incarceration during the holidays?

 

Eastern State Penitentiary partners with local organizations to collect gifts for children with incarcerated parents. From November 29 through December 22, any Eastern State visitor who donates a new toy or children's book, in its original packaging (but please no gift wrap), will be granted a second admission free of charge.

 

Please feel free to donate new toys or children's books at Eastern State during public hours, even if you're not planning to take a tour. Items can also be purchased online and shipped directly to the penitentiary:
