Batch A Toys

For 2016 we are increasing our goal... we want to collect 8,000 toys!  We need your help. 

Charlie Batch continues to lead the effort to collect new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages!  Best of The Batch works with a number of partner, non-profit organizations serving families in Allegheny County.  

On Tuesday, Novemer 29th, #GivingTuesday, at the US Steel Building, Charlie and his elves will be on site to collect toys.  Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to help us collect 5,000 8,000 new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages.  

Tuesday, November 29th


U.S. Steel Building, Plaza

600 Grant Street


Since the program started, we have distributed more than 35,000 toys to children, helped more than 1,000 families and last year, collected more than 5,000 toys.  Best of the Batch also provides household items - including dishes, towels, pots & pans, laundry baskets, and other family items - there is something for everyone.  

Charlie and Latasha personally deliver the toys and household items - along with smiles and joy - to children and families at the Women's Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, Children's Hospital, and to financially challenged families in Allegheny County.
