Join Cityteam’s When Help Meets Hope campaign to receive updates and opportunities to get involved and bring hope to those in need!
Each year, there are thousands of children in Chester and the surrounding areas in Delaware County that will not receive toys for Christmas without some help from people who care, like you! This year, we expect at least 900 families in need (with over 2,600 children) to register with us. You can bless these families for Christmas!
If you are interested, please email Anna Donahoe at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-872-6865 ext. 105.
It’s easy to help a family this Christmas!
- Choose How Many Children to Adopt
- The minimum requirement is 2 toys per child, according to their requests.
- Please budget a minimum of $50 per child.
- Some children ask for bikes; if you are interested in purchasing one, you may certainly add this in to the cost. We don’t promise any child that they will receive a bike.
- We also provide clothing sizes in case you are interested in buying extra items for the children. We don’t promise the families that we’ll get clothes for the kids.
- Buy the Toys!
- Have fun shopping, try to match the requests of the children as closely as possible, minimum 2 toys per child please.
- If you find great deals, shower them with toys; it’s not often they are spoiled!
- Try hard to keep their gifts fairly even within each chosen family; remember they are children, and they will compare with their brothers and sisters.
- If you’re interested in doing something for the parents, gift certificates to Walmart, Target, Giant, or Acme are a welcomed blessing.
- Please do not include cash gifts.
- Label the Toys
- Remember to include the family # and child’s first name on each gift—so we may get the right toys to the right families. Please do not wrap the gifts, but feel free to provide a roll of wrapping paper for the parents if you wish.
- Drop Off the Toys
- We need all gifts returned no later than Monday, December 11, 2017. It would be very helpful if the gifts were delivered earlier! This enables us to get the family’s bag assembled, and ready to be delivered to their house. We will deliver the toys to the parents on December 16th.
- We have a new toy warehouse location this year! The NEW location is 729 West 2nd Street, Chester PA 19013.
You are making a difference for children in need this Christmas. Your carefully selected gifts will bring a smile to their face and joy to their home.
