Project T.O.Y. Drive 2018 starts this weekend
Nov 18 to Dec 16
Collection box in Parish House Lobby
St. John's will again host a toy for Family Service League's/Tri Community and Youth Agency's Project T.O.Y. This very special program was started to give parents who are struggling financially the opportunity to choose two new unwrapped gifts for their children. The organization sets up a Holiday Gift Boutique where parents are invited to shop at no cost to them and are given the pleasure of presenting gifts that they have chosen to their children. This may seem basic to most of us, but for many families it is a much-needed and powerful experience which offers hope and the knowledge that their neighbors care.
We are asking for your help by donating new unwrapped toys and gift cards for children ages birth through 13, financial donation and/or new wrapping paper. Click for a list of 2018 Gift Ideas. Please note that gift cards in $10 or $20 denominations are always welcomed. You may drop-off toys and wrapping paper in the collection box in the Parish Hall lobby. Financial donations or gift cards, in an envelope marked "Project T.O.Y.", may be dropped off in the Parish Office during regular office hours, or in Sue Waiter's mailbox in the copy room.
