The holidays are right around the corner. For many, this is a time for family, friends, good food, and the exchange of gifts. Most of have us have fond childhood memories of waking up early on Christmas morning and opening gifts under the tree. Some of us can recall precisely how wonderful it felt to tear apart the shiny wrapping paper to reveal that new toy that we had our eye on for months. Now, many of us share that tradition with our own children and grandchildren.
Unfortunately, this is not the case for many children across our nation. So many are born into poverty and challenging circumstances. The holiday season is the best time to extend the spirit of giving, and what better way to do that than to make a child’s Christmas wish come true? No child should be disappointed on the holidays. That is why the Edge Group, along with Movement Mortgage & Bank of England will be hosting a “Toys For Tots” Toy Drive.
Join us December 7th from 6pm-9pm at North Beach Bistro, and help us spread holiday cheer! The Edge Group loves our community, which is why we want to give back in the most joyful way possible. If you would like to join us for this awesome event, bring at least one toy for the toy drive, and the first 100 guests (with toys) will receive a drink ticket. Hors d’oeuvres will be served to all guests.
Some things to keep in mind: most of the children receiving these gifts are under the age of twelve, so be sure to take note while purchasing a toy. Toys For Tots will not distribute any games for systems (Playstation games, etc.) as children may not have access to the systems. Realistic toy weapons are also on the list of items that will not be distributed. Please do not bring clothes, as this drive was created solely to gift recipients with things they want; not particularly necessities.
