What is Color Box?

Color Box is CoolxDad’s annual holiday gift drive. One of our most impactful community initiatives, this year’s drive benefits families in the Project Row Houses community and brings dads together to wrap and deliver joy.

Over the last two years, thanks to your support, we've given more than 1,000 toys to kids and their families in the city of Houston!

How do I participate?

Eleven businesses are hosting donation drop-offs this year from November 1 to 30. CoolxDad is specifically asking for kids’ toys, electronics, and new clothing (all sizes) with a value of up to $75. 

Drop off your unwrapped gifts at any of these locations around Houston:

What is Project Row Houses?

Project Row Houses is a nonprofit organization and a housing site in Houston’s 3rd Ward, one of the city’s oldest African-American neighborhoods. PRH programs impact underserved communities, including young single mothers and their children, and hosts community-enriching initiatives, art programs, and neighborhood development activities. CoolxDad is proud of every opportunity we have to partner with this incredible organization.

Thank you for supporting this important holiday initiative. Your donation will bring joy to so many kids in our community!
