We all have seen the Toys for Tots drive and how successful they are in bringing hope to a child who otherwise would not have a present for Christmas.
Well there are still so many children that don’t get to share in that experience. Children become homeless or live in shelters with their families due to many reasons – Fire, evictions, parental separation, child abuse etc.. the list can go on.. We are beginning our drive early this year so that we can maximize the number of items we can collect, or purchase, and distribute to each of the agencies working with children and their families.
One in 45 children experience homelessness in America each year. That’s over 1.6 million children.
We are asking you to help us to bring a little of excitement to a child in need. To let them know they are cared for, thought of, and most importantly they are not alone. If you can, please donate a toy or book for a child. Your donation will make a child feel a little less helpless and a lot more hopeful. Christmas is a magical time of the year. Help Santa bring a toy or book to a child and let that child dream a little longer. We have attached a list of suggested toys, this list serves as a suggestion only. Suggested Toys Please NO battery operated toys.
Jesus said, “Whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me” (Matthew 18:4-5).
If you are unable to send a toy or book and wish to make a monetary donation we will purchase a gift on your behalf. No amount is to small, all donations are welcome.
Items can be mailed to Tribos Ministries 46179 Laurie Drive, Hammond LA 70401
