We are happy to announce that our annual gift-giving event will be held at Xavier University’s Convocation Center, 7900 Stroelitz Street, New Orleans. The distribution will begin at 8 a.m. and the doors will open at 7 a.m. on Saturday, December 21, 2019.

The General Membership Meeting will be held Wednesday, December 4, 2019, at 6 p.m. at The New Orleans Advocate Office, 840 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans. This meeting is mandatory for table captains.

Remember, only Doll & Toy Fund members who have paid their current dues on or before December 4, 2019 will be permitted to participate in the 2019 toy distribution.

For those members who have already paid their dues for 2019, we appreciate your support.  Additional contributions of cash, checks or money orders are accepted at The Times-Picayune Doll & Toy Fund, c/o Quo Vadis Sylve Hollins, The New Orleans Advocate, 840 St. Charles Ave. ,New Orleans, LA  70130.
