Can You Help These Kids?

I received a call this morning and as a parent this just breaks my heart… The Villages’ Northeast Region does not have a sponsor this holiday season and the staff in those offices have been working diligently on trying to find community partners to help provide gifts for the kids that they serve.  Sadly, they can’t find anyone which means that nearly 100 children could go without Christmas.  Can you imagine your child waking up on Christmas morning and not having a single gift under the tree?  I’m hoping that the power of social media will help us collect some much needed toys, games, books, etc. for the kids served by The Villages in Northwestern Indiana.

Below are the kids names who need support and their ages.  We are looking for one NEW toy to give to each of these kids.  It doesn’t have to be much…maybe $20-$25.  Our only requirement is that these gifts be new.  If you can help please pick up a gift and drop it by one of The Villages’ offices in Elkart, Marion, Fort Wayne or Indianapolis (let us know it’s for the Northeast Region and we’ll make sure it gets there!)

Thank you in advance for your help.  I know that this weekend when I’m finishing my Christmas shopping I’ll pick up a few extra toys…and I hope you will too!
