Holiday Toy Pantry


Each year, Bidwell hosts Holiday Toy Pantry events to give away gifts to families in need throughout the month of December.  

Donation Drop Off: 


By appointment:  Please email Missy Reams at or at 515-244-6251 option 5. Please allow a minimum of 72 hours for scheduling. 

No contact Drop-off Bin:  Starting Monday, November 22, 2021, 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. 

No contact drop off – staying in your car option:  If you call a day ahead, we can coordinate a no contact drop off time.  You will pull up in your car and just pop the trunk and we will grab the items for you, and you don’t need to get out of your car.  Please call 515-244-6251 to schedule this, and allow a minimum of 72 hours to schedule. 

Needed Donations

Please note: all items should be brand new.
