Over the past five years, you helped to donate over


for local food banks and shelters.

Let's help our communities this winter!

Toys & Cans For Chips benefits local children, homeless shelters, food banks, and more across the country. Since World Tavern Poker is the world's largest poker community, let's all work together to help out these great causes in our local areas!

Now more than ever, it's vital that we help as much as we can. Even if you donate to local shelters in lieu of cans or toys, please do what you can, as many of these locations are in dire need of assistance.

TD's & Venues: Please select one of the programs below

PLAYERS: If your TD is not running Toys & Cans For Chips at your bar, tell them you'd love to step up and help manage this worthwhile promotion.

Toys For Tots

There are usually multiple Toys For Tots locations that operate in your local area.


Items to collect include (no used gifts please):


-- Small children's toys

-- Plush stuffed animals

-- Pack of markers or crayons

-- Books (for coloring or reading)

-- Balls for various sports

-- Dolls or action figures

Bonus Starting Chips!

If your Tournament Director or venue selects one of the programs above, please bring items listed for that program.


Toys For Tots Bonus Chips: Bring one (1) listed item to a participating bar, and you'll receive 3,000 extra chips for one game that night. Bring two (2) or more listed items, and you'll get 3,000 extra chips for both games that night.


Cans For Chips Bonus Chips: For each can you bring to a participating bar, you'll receive 1,000 extra chips up to 3,000 chips maximum per game. That means you can bring three (3) cans per game for a max of 3,000 extra chips.


These extra chips do NOT count towards your Bonus Chip Program maximum!

Send & Share Your Photos!

Take weekly photos of your collected items and share them on Facebook! You can also submit Toys & Cans For Chips photos to us by posting them directly on our Facebook page.

Cans For Chips

There are several ways to donate canned food items to local shelters or churches.


TD's: If you select Cans For Chips or Toys For Tots, you can log into the WTP website as your bar. At the bottom of the bar's profile page, click the box next to the Cans For Chips promotion. Your bar will have a 'can icon' next to it when players register for games. This will highlight your bar as taking part in this promotion!

NOTE: If you'd rather leave your No Loitering icon next to your venue on our schedule, do not check this box.

The Contest

PLEASE REMEMBER: Toys & Cans For Chips is a wonderful way to give back during the holiday season, and helping those in need is its own reward. But in order to get more items donated, we're offering ways of saying thank you for your donations.
