NOVEMBER 4, 2015: Spread joy this giving season and help children and families experiencing homelessness celebrate a warm, safe and memorable holiday.

Each November and December hundreds of community members donate new toys, books, winter clothes, gift cards or money to help stock our Baby Boutique and Holiday Toy Room. Hundreds of families are then invited to select gift items for their children.

 "We were worried we'd literally have Christmas in the dark this year," Angie, a former client, told us last year, referencing a high electric bill. "Presents weren't even an option. We were trying to figure out how we were going to explain this to our kids.”

"I'm so thankful for the support,” Angie said. “My family has gone through a series of tough bumps, and these gifts today are the difference between joy and sadness."

In all, we expect serve about 1,000 children and families experiencing crisis to visit our Baby Boutique or Toy Room this December.
