Dropped mine off this morning, I Love being able to help! You guys are wonderful for doing this!

Both of my daughters' Brownie troops had such an amazing experience shopping for these children. My 9 year old wanted to take more tags! Thank you for all you do for those in need. You are an organization close to our hearts.

I wasn't able to drop off today but ours will be there first thing Monday!! So sorry. But we our glad we could help 2 little girls this season!!

Just donated. I usually get a tag emailed but I am worried about shipping delays this year. I hope this donation will make some child’s holiday a little brighter. Your organization is phenomenal!

The boys helped me drop off this morning 😊

This is actually perfect timing. I was thinking about doing something like the USPS letter to Santa thing. But this is right in our community. I swear the universe keeps putting stuff on my lap 😂. I'll share the tickets with this post when I pick them up ❤️

I would love some tags for my Moisture Salon "where curls begin" tree

I wish there was a spot on your guys's website where you could fill out a wish list online for the parents that can't make it down or for parents that are disabled or have no transportation.

Don’t have time to shop? That’s okay. You can make a monetary donation and we’ll do the shopping for you. You donation will go even further as we can purchase the items at our discounted prices. How you choose to give is up to you. What matters most is that no child in a crisis situation is left behind this holiday season.
