2023 brought Jessy’s Toy Box back to another great year of toy donations and deliveries. After a few slow years due to Covid we finally started seeing an increase in toy donations. We are so excited to be able to help many hospitals and infusion centers all over the U.S.. We have been searching for new locations to hold a toy box drive. If you are a business, church group, school, or a private institution that would be interested in holding a toy drive please reach out to us. We are looking for places all over the U.S. We are still getting request from hospitals and would love to be able to keep providing them with all the toys that they need to fill their toy closets.
Jessy’s Toy Box on MSNBC!
A few days before Christmas Jessy’s Toy Box received a wonderful gift. We were featured on MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle show. WOW!! We are truly blessed to have had this opportunity for Jessy’s dream to reach so many people and touch their heart like he did ours.
This summer when going to races at the Sheyenne Speedway in Lisbon, ND or Buffelo River Race Park in Glyndon, MN you will see #00 supporting Jessy’s Toy Box. Kevin Youngquist is a big fan of Jessy’s Toy Box so I hope all of you cheer loud and support him and his awesome crew. We definitely are proud of team Youngquist and how they are doing this year! #Jessystrong!
H&M Lemonade Stand was started by some young entrepreneurs from Wyndmere, ND. They are mostly located at the corner of 3rd St. and Gilead Ave in Wyndmere. They do tend to travel to other towns when they have an opportunity, since their ages range between 8-13 they need an adult to help them get place to place. Not only do these young kids sell Lemonade, but they sell homemade cookies and bars. At times there are some homemade canned goodies like salsa and jellies. Yummy! All proceeds not only go to Jessy’s Toy Box, but to the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester, MN.
How to Train your Dragon
Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 10 AM CST
In February, we celebrated the opening of Jessy’s favorite movie, “How To Train Your Dragon III.” Cinema 6 in Breckenridge, Mn offered a $5 movie pass with a donated toy to the Toy Box. We had Jessy’s classmates all together in one theater, along with Mrs. Foertsch , Jessy’s 2nd grade teacher. We are truly thankful for everyone who came out in the not-so-great weather to see it. Hankinson Elementary even brought a bus. Thank you Mrs. Biewer and Michelle for bringing all the kiddos!
