Holiday Toy Pantry


Each year, Bidwell hosts Holiday Toy Pantry events to give away gifts to families in need throughout the month of December. Volunteers are needed to welcome families and help them shop!  Parents will "shop" through the toy pantry to get a new toy, stocking-stuffer, and hat & glove for each child.

Donation Drop Off: 


By appointment:  Please email Missy Reams at or at 515-244-6251 option 5. Please allow a minimum of 48 hours for scheduling. 

No contact Drop-off Bin:  Starting Tuesday, November 22, 2022, there will be a no contact drop off bin to drop off toys behind the yellow building by our administrative office, on the sidewalk between the building and the playground.
