Each year for the last 12 years we have provided Christmas to the families in our Community with children that are at risk of not having Christmas. Last year we served 1,020 children.
This year we are working with Waco ISD, Connally ISD and LaVega ISD. So far this year the numbers of families we have served (over 53,000) are double what we served last year. We are concerned we may not have enough toys if we get to 2,000 to 3,000 children this year.
If you can be a donor, toys can be dropped off at Things from the Heart at 4014 Bosque Blvd. Toys do not need to be wrapped. View our list of drop off locations below. Toys will be collected until December 4th. We will pick up the collection boxes throughout the Waco area to begin sorting to prepared for the distribution process.
We also need cash donations.
Each year we have several children that we purchase toys for when the donated toys do not equal the number of children.
The phone lines to register will open up November 1st.
For more information on how to receive assistance for this year’s event; call 254-265-6310. Registration will close Monday, December 12th.
We would like to ask that if you are signed up with another program for Christmas that you use one or the other.
In the event that we may not be able to provide toys to everyone, we want to meet as many needs as possible.
