Collins Group Realty to hold 3rd Annual Toy Drive during the Bluffton Christmas Parade, in partnership with Bluffton Self Help and the Bluffton Police Department.
This combination of events with the Bluffton Christmas Parade and the Toy Drive is essential in helping Bluffton Self Help in their efforts for collecting the toy donations needed to fill their Holiday Toy Shop. In 2018, Bluffton Self Help provided holiday presents for 2,117 local children and distributed over 13,400 toys.
“Bluffton Self Help distributes “toys” to children from baby to 12 years old, so don’t forget those pre-teens in your giving. We’ve picked up bike donations along the parade route… small electronics, make-up sets and curling irons,” Ashley Lindblad, Director of Marketing & Community Relations, Collins Group Realty
Parade attendees who wish to donate to this year’s toy drive should bring a new, unwrapped toy to the parade on December 7th. Collins Group Realty, with their Community Vehicle (box truck) as their parade float, will walk in the parade behind Bluffton Self Help to collect toy donations.

The parade begins at 10 am at the intersection of Pritchard and Bridge Street, weaves its way through Old Town Bluffton, and ends at the intersection of Pin Oak Street and 8th Avenue in the Bluffton Park community.
Collection boxes for donation can also be found in 3 locations along the parade route: Corner of Bridge Street and Pritchard Street; Near the Corner Perk at 46 and Calhoun Street; In Bluffton Park at 8th Avenue and Pin Oak St.
If someone is unable to attend the parade but would like to donate prior to December 7th, toys are being accepted at both Collins Group Realty offices in Bluffton and Hilton Head, as well as at the Bluffton Police Department, located at 101 Progressive Street. Donations can also be made directly to Bluffton Self Help. If you wish to obtain a donation receipt, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
