The clubs serve children from kindergarten through high school, so the age range of members is 6 to 18. The most popular toys are sporting equipment, art kits, science activities, and gift cards for movies, music, meals.

“We have 16 clubs in the metro area, and every club has a holiday party, and each party is a little bit different. That’s when we take the opportunity to give the toys out to the kids,” said Fail Bransteitter, a spokeswoman for the Boyd & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver. “A lot of the kids aren’t always thinking about getting a toy for themselves. Sometimes they’re thinking about getting a toy for their siblings or their cousins.”
