In 2021 we served over 400 families and more than 1,000 children in Tompkins County. We also sent a truck and two trailer loads of toys and essential items to Mayfield, Kentucky. We hope we made a difference.
Important Info and Events
Applications Are Now Available Until Nov. 20, 2022
The application for Cops, Kids, and Toys is now available for families to apply for holiday gifts for their children for 2022. The application deadline is Nov. 20, 2022 at 9pm. We can only accept late applications if we have gifts left. Please remember that we serve families that are not getting gifts from another organization such as Cornell Elves, Toys for Tots, Salvation Army or any other community organization. Some families at certain schools may be required to get their own verification that their family is not being served by Cornell Elves or other programs offered through the school. We are sorry about this, but each application needs to be treated with equity. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Applications And Other Changes for 2022
There are many changes for the 2022. We are using a different format for our application for 2022, so please read it over carefully while you're filling it out. We will also only have one pick up location for the entire county. We will have pick up spread over 3 days, and you can choose the day that best fits your schedule. We are finalizing the application and expect for it to be available before October 1, 2022. The Application Deadline is November 20, 2022 at 9pm. Pick ups will be done on Monday, Dec. 12, Tuesday, Dec. 13, and Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 11am until 7pm each of those days at the Toy Room that is at The Shops of Ithaca Mall in the old Famous Footwear Store next to Claire's and across from Michael's. Please note that we will be checking applications with Salvation Army, Cornell Elves, and Toys for Tots, and will only be able to serve families not being served by another organization.
Motorcycle Ride Thank You
Thank you to the Eagles Club, the State Troopers, Tompkins County Probation Department, and the riders who participated in the 2022 Motorcycle Ride. We are happy that the Motorcycle Ride was back and look forward to it being even better next year!
Yarn Donations Needed
There are a great group of ladies that make hats, mittens, scarves and slippers for the children we serve at Christmas time. They are asking us for yarn donations, so that they can do it again this year. If you'd like to donate yarn to them, please call Sis at 607-272-6806. Your donations are greatly appreciated by these wonderful ladies!
Thanks to all that came out and supported Dump and Run 2022! We look forward to doing it again next year.
Annual Board Meeting-Thank You
Thank you to all that came out to the 2022 Cops, Kids and Toys Luncheon. We were able to hear how a donation Cops, Kids, and Toys made to help Ukrainian civilians aiding fellow Ukrainians is making a positive difference for those living in the Ukraine. We also received a generous donation from the Ithaca Eagles Club for fundraisers they held in 2021. The Tompkins County Probation Department received the George Sutfin Volunteer Award. Thank you Tompkins County Probation Department, your help these past two years whenever it was needed has been invaluable. We look forward to Dump and Run 2022, our largest fundraiser, and the Christmas holiday toy drive and give away.
