Death Wish Coffee + Toys for Toga 2021

By Megan Dority — / The Biz

What is Toys for Toga?

Toys for Toga is a toy drive and fundraising effort hosted by local businesses in the Saratoga Community to ensure children in the community have the best holiday season possible. 

"Since 2015, in partnership with Toys for Toga, Death Wish Coffee has collected over 6,000 toys for the children of Saratoga County." — John Swedish, director of strategic engagement and partnerships

The 9th annual Toys for Toga drive includes DeCresente Distributing Company, Druthers Brewing Company and many more local businesses. All the money raised and toys donated are then divided equally among Franklin Community Center, CAPTAIN Youth and Family Services and Mechanicville Area Community Services.

How Can You Help? 

From November 1 through December 6, 2021, we will be accepting donations of new and unwrapped toys at our HQ + Retail Shop. The first 1,000 people who donate toys will receive a free 1-lb. bag of Death Wish Coffee. Additionally, those who stop by to donate will also be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a Death Wish Coffee prize basked valued at $500.
