Coming to the Not So Acoustic Christmas Show? Bring a new unwrapped toy to donate to the Kids First Toy Drive!
It’s time for our annual Christmas Party for homeless & underprivileged children! We are a 501C3 non-profit, and Do Not Receive any Local, State or Federal Funding. Our very small grass-roots charity relies solely on friends like you! We’ve done this event for over 20 years!
Every Christmas, we have an awesome party for over 300 kids & a group of senior citizens. There is lots of food, generously donated from area restaurants, music, entertainment, gifts & of course Santa! We ask each child for their own wishes, some ask only for socks or food. These families have no resources to provide the “luxury” of a Christmas with gifts. We try our best to give each and every child clothes, 2 toy wishes and maybe shoes. After the party, the work continues at our donated store to help families right up until Christmas day. Our store this year is at Quail Corner’s Shopping Center, 8400 Park Rd. (right next to Salsaritas). You can drop off a toy, clothes or donation Monday thru Friday from 10am to 2 pm. Extended hours closer to Christmas.
Last year, with your help, we brought Christmas joy to over 600 and were able to help right up to the last minute. In this tough economy, this will again be a very hard year for many, as we continue to receive calls from folks in need of food and clothing, the basics.
Volunteers needed all day to wrap gifts, decorate, and catch the Christmas spirit on Saturday, December 14th from 1:00 pm till the wee hours of the morning at Sharon Presbyterian Church, 5201 Sharon Rd. Community service hours are given to all students & clubs! Plan a toy or change drive, collect new shoes, or adopt a family! These children look so forward to the party, it is their Christmas, they depend on us!
