Dear FRIENDS and PARTNERS:

Merry Christmas!!!!!

As we now prepare for our December 17th Christmas Toys to Needy KIDZ Rally, we first want to thank Partners and FRIENDS for making it possible for us to give to 811 families Food baskets for their Thanksgiving Meal.  In this number 25 Thanksgiving Baskets were donated to the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS) Youth Services Center (YSC)  for  parents of youth incarcerated at  the facility. 

As our last rally of the year, we look forward to sponsoring our CHRISTMAS Toys to Needy KIDZ  Rally at the Harry Thomas Community Service Center on Saturday, December 17th, at 10:00am. The Harry Thomas Center is located at 1743 Lincoln Rd. NE 2002; and we look forward to providing children and youth in the community, as well as those who may come from families who are: homeless,living in shelters, in Foster Care, and  siblings of incarcerated youth at the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services toys for Christmas. 

Should you or your group/organization/small group like to donate new toys, or make an end of the year tax Deductible donation towards helping to provide toys for the children, your donation can be made out to: World Missions.  

We would also love to have you and your family come and volunteer at the rally which would allow you to meet some of the families and children who will be receiving toys.

Thanks in advance for your donation and we look forward to having you and your family come be with us at the December 17th Toy Give Away,

Merry Christmas,
