Bayou Country Toy Drive


As our community continues to focus on rebuilding efforts, this upcoming holiday season is a time to uplift and encourage one another. The Houma Area Convention and Visitors Bureau will be a public donation location for toys, kicking off on Monday, October 18 and running through December 3rd. The mission behind this toy drive is to provide local families with the ability to create meaningful Christmas memories with their loved ones. Louisiana’s Bayou Country will always be an area that radiates strength, hope, and faith that a better tomorrow is around the corner. With the help of gracious donors and sponsors, together we can uplift our local families by allowing everyone to feel the magic of Christmas this year.
Donations can be made to the Houma Area Visitors Center each week, Monday-Friday from 9AM-5PM.

We are encouraging that donated toys meet the following requirements:
• All toys should remain unwrapped for donation
• Spending limit range: $20-$50
• No realistic toy weapons or food
• Gifts for children up to 16 years old

While purchasing items for smaller children is a simple task, donors may often wonder what to get for pre-teens and teens. The HACVB has created an Amazon Wishlist that has recommendations of gifts for all ages and can be shipped directly to the Visitors Center for your convenience.
In the coming weeks, additional information will be released detailing the distribution event that will take place. Stay tuned, cher!
