Volunteer for Toy Closet

BIG Love Cancer Care

B.I.G. Love Cancer Care provides toys on a weekly basis for the cancer clinic (Houston and Austin) serving approximately 600 children and teens each month. After procedures, pokes or radiation, cancer kids at the clinic get to take a trip to the B.I.G. Love toy closet and pick out a special surprise. Our Toy Closet has brought to the children and teens at the cancer clinic many smiles and much joy.

Starting your Toy Drive is easy!

Collect toys $5.00 and under and e-mail a B.I.G. Love representative when your Toy Drive is complete. We will make arrangements to get your toys for delivery to the hospital. Toys over $5.00 are accepted. They will be saved by the nurses for special situations.
