Christmas Toy Drive
Christmas time is a very special time of year, a time that brings families together and gives children memories that will be carried with them for the rest of their lives; it is a time that brings out the best in a child and shows them, if only for a day, a better world than the streets can offer.
Christmas in Back of the Yards is not as certain as it may be in other communities. Many families struggle with poverty and cannot afford to buy presents for their children. The BYNC’s response is to once again launch its Christmas Toy Drive and Toy Giveaway campaigns.
Between October 17th and December 9th, the BYNC will be collecting toys and working with schools, local businesses, and other community organizations to identify children in need through a “Letters to Santa” program. Unfortunately, the demand for toys in our community always exceeds the donations we receive, so the BYNC also relies on monetary contributions to purchase additional toys.
It is at this time that I ask you and your business to help make Christmas a reality for Back of the Yards children.
Every child deserves a happy and memorable Christmas. Please donate today to make it possible.
