Nine years ago we teamed up with a Local National Association of Letter Carriers to buy gifts and deliver them to a classroom|
of under privilege kids. We take each kid a large gift (valued $15) and a stocking with toothpaste, toothbrush, hair brush or comb,
a pair of gloves, some pencils, crayons, a small stuffed animal and some candy. They also all get their picture with Santa to take home.
We have continued to do this every year going from visiting 1 classroom of 27 children to being able to do 600 Children, and now our goal is
to be able to do the whole school. There are about 1200 kids in the school.
Because the funding we had through the Letters Carriers has stopped we plan different fundraising projects and toy drives to try to make this possible.
we have 3 events planned for this summer ...please check out our events page for informarioin.
2015 was an amazing year because of all the donations from the Go Fund me site, The Penrose family and friends, The Raines family,
the team effort we had with the Phoenix chapter of the LLS, and the unbelievable donations of Stuffed Animals from La La Lou's Baby Boutique
we were able to do 30 classrooms totaling over 600 kids
We are so greatful for all the volunteers and donations that made this possible we could not do this without them.Thank you all again!
If you would like to participate, make a donation, have other suggestions or an idea for an event,
or If your company or group would like to host a toy drive please call Tammi at 602-622-1751
