Help Denver Metro BOMA (Building Owners and Managers Association) make the holiday season brighter for thousands of children and adults by donating a new gift or toy to the 28th annual Gift & Toy Drive that kicks off November 7 in office buildings across the Front Range.
The BOMA Gift & Toy Drive began in 1995 as a small collection of buildings gathering a few hundred items for charity. Today, thousands of toys and gifts are collected for local charities in office buildings from Longmont to Castle Rock.
Donation boxes will be located in participating buildings from November 7 through December 5, 2023. The boxes will be picked up and donations will be sorted by Denver Metro BOMA volunteers before being distributed to major charities including Center for Work Education and Employment, DCAC, Denver Children’s Homes, Denver Safehouse, Gateway Domestic Violence Services, Haven of Hope, Mountain States Children’s Home, Mount Saint Vincent and Sarah’s Home.
Popular items to donate include new/unwrapped hats, scarves, gloves, make-up, bath products, board games, wallets, gift cards, personal care items, watches, craft kits, action figures, remote control toys, clothing gift cards, sports equipment, and toys. Cash donations can also be made here.
Denver Metro BOMA is one of Denver’s oldest non-profit associations and was founded 103 years ago in 1920. The association represents nearly 90 percent of Denver’s commercial real estate. Employees from the association’s member buildings and vendors donate their time to collect, sort, and distribute donations to major charities during the holiday season.
