We ask you to donate NEW toys and clothing, for children ages infant to 16 years old. Please bring your NEW unwrapped gifts to the Administrative office. Collection begins NOW through Monday, December 15.

    We are also in need of wrapping supplies, such as tape, gift bags, tissue paper and boxes. WINTER THEME ONLY! Volunteers are needed to wrap these gifts. We will be having two wrapping events (the first is Thursday, November 20, 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.). Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
