The holidays are fast approaching, and the JF&CS Center for Family Assistance has begun our annual toy drive. Our goal is to provide gift cards of at least $25 to 400 children in our community who otherwise will not receive presents.
For the families we help, however, this may be the only gift their children will receive all year. Money may not be available for birthday gifts or other celebrations during the year. Therefore, these holiday gifts take on added meaning, enabling a child to feel special, and a parent to feel empowered, by offering her the means to give something “extra.”
