It's the time of year when everything is merry and bright for many people spending time with their families and enjoying the holidays. That isn't always the case for everyone. For some, the choice of paying an essential utility bill or buying warms coats or new shoes, instead of gifts or extra goodies, is a very difficult one.
That's why FOX13's Family Focus is collecting toys for the children at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Memphis - to give them a chance to experience the joy of the holiday season.
The toy drive will be held Thursday, December 5 at the corner of Poplar and Highland. We will be collecting donations from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the Poplar Avenue side of the mall.
This is the third year FOX13's Family Focus has held a toy drive. We are always supported by our partners Chik-fil-A, Kroger and Wolfchase Honda Nissan, who strive to make the holiday's wonderful for children in need.
Stop by to say hello and drop off a gift for a child in need!
Gifts for boys and girls, ages 6–18, are needed. Click here for the wish list or read below:
About the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis:
The mission of the annual Toy Drive is for each member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis to receive at least one gift during the holiday season. This is only made possible through the support of the Memphis community. By providing toys for our kids we are relieving the burden of our parents that are less fortunate and providing our communities with a blessed holiday season.
