My Brother’s Keeper will be hosting a Pop Your Trunk toy drive on Saturday, November 14, from 10 a.m. to noon to support its annual Christmas Assistance Program for local families.

To ensure safety, participants are asked to drive up to the Dartmouth facility at 1015 Reed Road and remain in their vehicles while staff and volunteers remove unwrapped gift donations from their popped trunks.

Donations of all types of toys are much appreciated, particularly high-demand items like Legos, LOL Surprise dolls, superhero action figures, arts and craft kits, science kits, board games, video games, books, scooters, infant toys, Axe or Old Spice gift sets, and anything representing Boston sports teams.

Items must be new. Gifts should not be wrapped.

The Corey C. Griffin Foundation — which partners with nonprofits to serve underprivileged youth and people with medical challenges — has pledged $10 to My Brother’s Keeper for every item donated, up to $10,000.

Last December, My Brother’s Keeper delivered gifts to 3,200 families, supporting more than 13,000 children and adults.

This Christmas season is expected to have a heightened need, according to a release from the nonprofit.

The release stated that My Brother’s Keeper has already received over 1,400 requests for Christmas assistance from local families in need.

Those wishing to support the Christmas effort can also purchase high-need items from the organization’s Amazon Wish List. Visit www.mybrotherskeeper.org for details.
