The New Orleans Toy Chest provides gifts, toys and food to the low income and poor families of Greater New Orleans area during the holiday season.

Over the last 6 years, the New Orleans Toy Chest has provided thousands of underprivileged Greater New Orleans area families with toys and gifts during the Christmas season.

We rely exclusively on donations and participation from the people of Greater New Orleans area
and the local business community to ensure that no child or family goes without during the holiday season.

With the recent flooding in our State of Louisiana an estimated 8,000 more families will be seeking our assistance this holiday season. The local community and businesses whom we’ve depended on for support have all been adversely affected by the 2016 Historic Flooding.

We are in a state of panic as to how we are going to provide for the underprivileged people of Greater New Orleans area that have been displaced by the flooding in our local area.

Whether you are an individual, family, non-profit organization, church or business, you have the ability to make a difference! Each dollar raised helps us administratively to serve the needs of those in need. Please consider making a donation of ANY size to the New Orleans Toy Chest Fund!
Help spread the word!


NOLA Toy Chest started in 2011 by Lanzer Robinson with the official campaign roll outs activating in 2012. In 2011, we gifted all of our contributions to local charities in New Orleans. NOLA Toy Chest was created to gift New Orleans families in need and to service our community as a shelter of last resort for Christmas.   In partnership  for 6 years with Starwood Hotels (then W New Orleans), METRO Disposal Services and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, NOLA Toy Chest set out to make Christmas special for all in our community.   Our first season, we provided toys for 75 families.   Over the course of time we have been fortunate enough to service more and more. We appreciate all of the unique partnerships with agencies over the years as we have grown to support more families with growth happening each year forward.

Special Thanks to all of our Hotel partners each year and they are Loews Hotel, Crowne Plaza New Orleans and Omni Royal Crescent.  Our Law Firm partner for 3 years Mr. Morris Bart Law Firm. Our church partner for 3 years Greater St. Stephen.  Our newer partners Papa Johns. Our retail partners Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowes and Starbucks Coffee. We appreciate the ongoing food support of Dominos Pizza, the Trumpet Group, Zapps Chips and Southern Eagle Distributors.

NOLA Toy Chest is produced by the Fashion Weekend of New Orleans Foundation which is a local non-profit working to eventually gift our first scholarship in the City of New Orleans and services as our official event producer for NOLA Toy Chest.   NOLA Toy Chest looks forward to growing each year going forward and we could not do as much without the support of our donors and toy contributors.  Thanks for your support.

In its 6th year, Lanzer Robinson remains the Executive Director of NOLA Toy Chest and works to continue supporting New Orleans while also servicing St. James, St. Charles, Jefferson, Terrebonne and St. Tammany.  Always check the front page of our website for Registration starts and deadlines for registration and donating.
