The holidays are synonymous with toys and gift giving. It is a joyous time for most. But, for struggling families it is a time of stress and anxiety. Parents want their children to experience the joy and excitement of receiving the toys of their dreams. Thankfully, holiday toy drives help fill the need.
Every year we pick an organization that is in need of some extra love during the holiday season. This year we have partnered with Center for Hope and Safety and their Holiday Gift Drive.
About The Center for Hope and Safety: The Center for Hope and Safety is founded on the vision and belief that every person has the right to be safe, empowered, and free from violence and the fear of violence. Central to this belief, CHS seeks to eliminate domestic violence.
We will be collecting new toys and clothing items to donate to the center now until Friday, December 14th. They have asked for the following items:
ALL HOLIDAY DONATIONS MUST BE NEW.
*SINCE OUR ORGANIZATION OPERATES ON THE PRINCIPLE OF NON-VIOLENCE, AND WHILE WE GREATLY APPRECIATE ALL NEW ITEMS DONATED, WE CANNOT ACCEPT ANY TOYS THAT ARE DEEMED VIOLENT (SUCH AS TOY GUNS AND KNIVES, ETC.
