Greetings and Merry Christmas Partners and Friends:
As World Missions EXTENSION Center prepare for its December 20th TOYS TO NEEDY KIDZ GIVE AWAY Rally, the demographic profile describing the families who will be in attendance at the rally reveal that most of the families predominatley live in Ward 5, with a great majority of the remaining families live in other wards of the city. The social economic profile of families served consist of parents who are categorized as follows:
- Foster- care parents;
- Parents who Receive Tanif (welfare)assistance,
- Veterans needing resources/benefits and toys for their children;
- Families with children living in shelters;
- Families who have lost one and or two children to Violence;
- Siblings of incarcerated youth;
- Moms and Dads in our Angel Tree Program;
- Latino families;
- Families living in Domestic Violence Homes;
- and others referred to us from Special Population Groups
Just as the EXTENSION Center's partners and FRIENDS supported the Thanksgiving Rally which provided 980 Thanksgiving Baskets to low income families needing food on the table for their Thanksgiving meal with their families, we again need your help in obtaining toys for the children who will be present at the Toy Give AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 20TH TOY GIVE AWAY RALLY:
The Toys to Needy Kids GIVE Away Rally will be held on Sunday, December 20th at McKinley Technology High School in the gymnasium at 3:00pm and the door opens at 2:30pm. The school is located at 151 T. Street NE Washington, DC 20002.
Last year with your help, we gave away a total of 3000 toys to children from shelters, foster care; the community, and as well as children who are siblings of incarcerated youth and children of an incarcerated mom/dad.
Make an End of the Year Tax Deductible Donation for Children Needing Toys
Our goal with your help, is to double the number of gifts each child receives at the rally as well as provide toys to an even greater number of children. In looking to meet this goal, we need your help and ask that small groups, organizations, churches, fraternity groups, etc consider adopting one of the families who needs HELP providing toys for their children. Your tax deductible will insure that all children in attendance at the toy give away will have a Merry Christmas. With your help this can be done.
May God bless you as we celebrate Jesus being the REASON for the Season by sharing his love with the children is how we roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
