39th Annual Toy Drive & Giving Tree
Each holiday season WACO works with area schools and businesses to collect unwrapped new toys. We serve more than 2000 impoverished children, so the need is great. If your school or business would be interested in helping us collect toys this year, please let us know.
We also host Giving Trees with schools and businesses. You’ll receive tags/ornaments that includes the child’s first name, age, gender, clothing size and a couple of Santa wishes. You put the tags on your Christmas Tree, and then your clients fulfill all or part of the child’s wish list. Then they wrap the gifts and bring them back to your business. We pick them up and distribute to the child. If your school or business would like to host a Giving Tree, please let us know.
Both the Toy Drive and Giving Trees usually run from Thanksgiving week until the second week in December. This allows us to make sure everything is distributed before the children go on winter break.
