Holiday Toy Drive 2012

While many of us enjoy time with our family and friends over the holidays, many of our children are spending it alone. We do our best to fill in for a loving family, but we need your help to make the season a little brighter. There are many ways to give – big or small – to bring joy to a child this holiday.

Thank you and Happy Holidays from all of us at Childhelp!

The Childhelp Holiday Toy Drive is Underway

Would you like to spread some cheer and make some deserving children happy? You can! Simply donate an unwrapped toy or gift card so the children of Childhelp will have a very happy holiday to remember.  

Please bring in your gifts by December 15th, so Santa has time to wrap and deliver all the presents.
