‘Project Concern’ Christmas Toy Giveaway
Christmas is seven weeks away. Many people are feeling the money crunch. We want to do what we can for our kids. We all know somebody that is having difficulties or maybe it’s you.
You want to get your kids something for Christmas but rent, bills and food can make it difficult. That’s why Project Concern is here. It’s their annual Christmas Toy Giveaway. It’s for infant to teen. All incomes are welcome and begins today.
Last year, Tara was helping out and she was talking to a lady dropping off toy donations. She was telling her that in the past, she needed help from Project Concern.
Her husband had been laid off and just didn’t have the money. She was grateful that she was able to donate back to this wonderful cause. It’s stories like this, that just warm our hearts.
It runs this and next Monday-Wednesday (11/6-8) and next Monday-Wednesday & Friday (11/13-15 and 11/17) from 2-4 pm.
Just a reminder: DOCUMENTATION IS REQUIRED. ID needed for the adult and a birth certificate or court custody document for each child they are shopping for. They also accept SS card, insurance card and benefit card for the children.
Here’s another important thing: Kids are not allowed to be with the parent when they shop.
