In our December Newsletter we asked our daycare families to please donate a toy for The City Kidz Gift of Christmas toy drive. We received a great response from our families and we were able to fill under our Christmas tree. As the gifts were placed under the tree, we discussed that these are gifts for other kids that are less fortunate then us.
I then dropped off all the toys to City Kidz and volunteered to help sort out the dropped off toys. Their warehouse was full of toys sorted by ages and gender. There are Captains for each City Kidz family and they pick all the toys. They then get wrapped and then delivered to the kids before Christmas. What a great job to be able to see how happy these kids are when they revive the gift they wished for! What a fabulous organization!
Thanks to all the families who donated and will put a smile in a kid’s face this Christmas!
