DeSoto ISD is excited to announce the 2021 annual district toy drive benefiting the Chocolate MINT Foundation’s annual Christmas Candyland event set to take place December 18.

Starting Monday, November 15, 2021, those interested can drop off new and unwrapped coats, gifts and toys for school-aged children at district campuses and the DeSoto ISD Instructional Support Center located at 200 E. Belt Line Road. Donors must wear a mask or face covering while dropping off donations.

“Each year, we are so fortunate to be able to make this happen for our children,” said Felicia Frazier, co-founder and executive director of the Chocolate MINT Foundation. “However, we continue to see a gap in toys and gifts for boys ages eight to 11 and for our preteens. We are always so grateful for the support of our communities in making this happen and are excited about the opportunity to create a memorable experience for our children and families this year.”

Those interested in donating but who are not comfortable doing so in person, may have donations shipped to the district at 525 Ray Street, DeSoto, TX 75115. The DeSoto ISD is also working with the Chocolate MINT to create an Amazon wish list and an online option to make cash donations to support the purchase of gifts for this event via the Chocolate MINT Foundation’s website.

All donations will benefit the more than 400 children registered with the Chocolate MINT to participate in the event which will include food trucks for families as they pick up their selections.
