Our Mission

We are a 501(c) organization dedicated to providing toys and other care items to childhood cancer patients undergoing treatment. Based out of Atlanta, we support metro-area hospitals by delivering items like movies, video games, toys, and gift cards.

100% of all donations go directly into supporting families confronted by childhood illness.

Compassion

We work with families, hospitals and other charitable organizations to provide toys to kids undergoing intensive medical treatments. We know the positive impact simple comforts can make in tough times.

Charity

Donations go directly to items like toys, movies, and video games for pediatric oncology centers to give to patients. We also give out things like gift cards and vouchers for entertainment and family outings.

Community

We hold motorcycle rides, brunches, auctions, and other events each year. Everything we do comes with the help and support of local businesses and community organizations that we appreciate so much.

If you would like to help “Color Our Community Gold” today, we will be at Ashley Park starting at 10:30. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!

Before a Childhood Cancer touched our family I had no clue...sure, I saw the St. Jude commercials and cried, but I had no idea... When your Child is diagnosed with Childhood Cancer it drops you to your knees. Your life as you knew it is forever changed. Your role as a parent is forever changed. Your world becomes full of Doctors and hospitals. Your family becomes somewhat isolated. You constantly live in fear. You pray until you can no longer pray. When an answer to a prayer is YES, it is a miracle, when the answer is NO, well... You learn to completely walk by Faith. Some days it’s extremely easy and other days you want to ask God what the heck he is thinking. It is a rollercoaster of highs and lows. It is a journey that I would not wish on my worst enemy yet it is a beautiful gift. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. There are several ways you can help Joey’s Toy Box bring Childhood Cancer to light: 1). A yard sign. We are selling these for $15 and will deliver. 2) Paint your business Windows with Gold Ribbons. We can do it for you or provide you with the paint to do it yourself (we will even come clean) 3) Join is as we travel back to the old west as we kick off the month of September with our Wild, Wild West Casino Night. 8/31 4) Joey’s Ride 11th Annual Motorcycle Ride 9/2 5) purchase a Belk ticket for $5 and take advantage of Belks specials during their Charity Event day

Here is an amazing sponsorship opportunity and a fun evening out. It’s a Wild, Wild West Casino Night benefiting Joey’s Toy Box on Friday, August 31, 2018 at the Historic Newnan Train Depot from 7-11. Tickets are $75 a piece or 2 for $125. This includes your food, beverages, starter chips and entertainment We encourage everyone attending to dress in their Wild, Wild West attire. If you are interested in being a sponsor or tickets (limited number of tickets) PM me or comment below. Who we are: Joey’s Toy Box is a local 501(c)(3) whose mission is to provide comfort and support to the children and families engaged in the battle of Childhood Cancer. We accomplish this mission of love by providing toys, games, gaming systems, Xbox games, DVD’s, arts, crafts, Essential Oils and any other item the Child Life Specialist or Social Workers request. Each year we pick at least 4 Childhood Cancer families and provide their entire Christmas. Mom and Dad give us their children’s Christmas List and we do all the work. Each child in the family received at least 3 gifts from their wish list. Mom & Dad receive a gift too. Whatever we can do to ease some of the strain on the parents or children, we strive to do . We have provided several families with new beds, photo shoots, hospital proms, shopping sprees, a week at Great Wolf Lodge, trips to the Atlanta Zoo or the Georgia Aquarium, computers, and even a dog run so that a family did not have to give away their dog due to chemo related restrictions. We have NO paid employees. Everything we do is done by our amazing volunteers. So far Joey’s Toy Box has identified over 30 children in Coweta and Fayette Counties who are either engaged in the battle, fought the battle or have lost their battle of Childhood Cancer.

Two weeks ago I received an email from one of our Child Life Specialists, included in her wish list was Essential Oils. Of course I raised an eyebrow and asked a few questions. One of their patient families had donated a few samples oils. They were a huge success and they quickly ran out. They were wondering how they could get more oils donated so they reached out to Joey’s Toy Box. Yesterday Joey’s Toy Box and our DoTerra Consultants, headed to Scottish Rite armed with Essential Oils and taught their Child Life Specialist how to use the oils. Today we did the same thing at Egleston. Joey’s Toy Box will now make sure that they always have a supply of oils on hand. These kids are given so much medication, it’s so exciting to know that we are going to be able to add a natural tool to their arsenal of medication. We are looking forward to teaching the patients, families, nurses and doctors all the uses of Essential Oils. We are already planning on going back up to make diffuser bracelets, necklaces, roller balls and my personal favorite, play dough with the kids. ❤️ Thank you so much to our doTerra consultants, Meghan Huff Grantham, Joy Lynn Tarpley and Tanya Campbell McWilliams for helping us with this new journey! And of course we took toys too!

About us

JTB was founded by our son, Joey Doolittle. Joey was a lifelong cancer warrior who was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma at only 3 months of age. Throughout Joey's life, he underwent numerous chemotherapy protocols, surgeries, and radiation treatments. Toys provided by the hospitals always seemed to make his treatments a little more bearable. During the twilight of Joey's young life, when he was the sickest, he decided to conduct a fundraiser to raise money to buy the other kids at the hospital toys. On June 7, 2008, Joey raised $1,800 by organizing a "cycle-a-thon" at a local gym in Peachtree City, GA. A few days later, Joey made his first and only delivery of toys to the AFLAC Children's Cancer Center at Scottish Rite hospital in Atlanta. On July 4, 2008, after a lifetime battle against cancer, Joey peacefully passed away in his mother's arms.

Joey's impact on his family, friends, and other childhood cancer patients continues to evolve and flourish. His simple dream of helping the other kids and their families continues to live on because of the incredible community of volunteers that have felt Joey in their hearts. With no paid employees, we are a 100% volunteer army dedicated to the JTB mission. We operate this way so that we can put every dollar towards helping these kids and their families. We have dedicated ourselves to being good stewards of the money, time, and efforts of our volunteer community. We will continue Joey's mission with the compassion and integrity that he had when he started it... simple as that.
