The Eric Berry Foundation and Baron BMW Toy Drive

Benefits Children’s Mercy Hospital


The Eric Berry Foundation and Baron BMW have taken on the annual holiday toy drive that benefits Children’s Mercy Hospital. The drive will encompass fund raising and a toy drive held November 18-December 2.

The official name of this project is Stock the Shoppe and it’s awesome. CMH sets up a pop-up store at the hospital that allows parents to holiday shop for new toys/gift cards for free, so that they aren’t incurring an additional hit to their finances and can shop within the hospital without being too far from their sick children.

EBF and BMW have a soft spot for the children of this hospital and their families. Help us bring smiles to their faces during the holidays!

Please visit these participating locations for drop off of toys or gift cards!


Receive a 20% discount on your toy drive purchases and drop them in their boxes!

Visit them today! 2008 W 103rd Terrace, Leawood, KS 66206
