Planning
a collection

Getting started

1. Register your group online

2. Set a date for your collection

The earlier the better! We have a lot of sorting and packing to do to make sure the food and gifts get distributed before Christmas.

Your collection could be one specific day or a period of a few weeks — just make sure everyone knows when the deadline is.

3. Promote your collection!

  • Put up the posters
  • Hand out the DL cards
  • Play the video
  • Share on social media and remember to use #toysntucker and tag @anglicaresydney
