December 15th - 10AM Recovery House of Worship - 360 Schermerhorn St
Helping Hands Toy Store started with one simple belief – Families would prefer to provide for themselves at Christmas rather than receive a hand out. Even if a family has limited means to do so, a mom, dad, aunt, uncle or grandparent wants to buy gifts for their families around the holidays. Helping Hands Toy Store is an event designed to through suggested donation*, provide the families in our neighborhood the opportunity, to pick out toys for themselves, have them wrapped on site and know there are neighbors and organizations that care about them and want to support them in caring for their children.
*The suggested donations will go towards providing future supporting programming
