Toy Drive for Pine Ridge

The Toy Drive for Pine Ridge is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that collects and delivers toys for children of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and raises heating fund donations to purchase propane for elder households. In years past, the Toy Drive relied on live music concerts for donations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these concerts were not held this year.

There will be a toy drop off box in the lobby of the Lied Education Center for the Arts. All toys must be new and unwrapped. The donation box will be available through Tuesday, Nov. 24. Social distancing protocol will be in place and the donation box is only available to Creighton faculty, staff and students.

Please consider supporting this organization through toy donations, or its heating fundraiser. Learn more at
