Christmas Toy Drive
One of our favorite distributions every year is providing children the joy of Christmas morning. We assist over 1,000 central city households by allowing parents to "shop" for toys in a respectable store-like atmosphere at the Capuchin Community Services’ House of Peace site. Due to the current health crisis we are planning on putting up a tent so parents can select toys outside. We are currently in need of Christmas presents for children 10 years of age and under. Can you help us brighten a child's life with a Christmas gift? In picture to right, Capuchin Br. Robert Wotypka thanks children who are helping with our drives.
We would prefer toys to be unwrapped and in gift bags. This way our parents can easily find perfect presents for their children. Our goal is for each child age birth to 10 years of age to receive an average of 3 gifts. That means we need over 3,000 gifts total!
Order toys from our registries or download a flyer with suggestions here:
