Christmas is a great time for reaching out to children who may not have the opportunity to experience the joy and excitement of gifts under the tree.
White Oak is once again collecting toys for Nate’s Toy Box, a local charity for children who may not have the opportunity to experience the joy and excitement of gifts under the tree.
Nate’s Toy box was conceived in 2006 a an adjunct to S.O.N. (Serving our Neighbors) Ministries food pantry to help complete Christmas for families in the area who are experiencing difficult times.
Toys can be dropped off now through Wednesday, December 9th at White Oak Gardens. Unwrapped gifts for a girl or boy up to age 12 or gift cards to Walmart & Target for teens are much appreciated.
Toys will be distributed at Groesbeck United Methodist Church along with S.O.N. Ministries food pantry collections.
To fill the need, Nate’s Toy Box has joined efforts with Northwest Local School District, the Clippard YMCA, Triple Creek Retirement Community and a collaboration of local churches & Businesses.
From Nate’s Toy Box:
“We have found the need to provide toys and gift cards has increased each year but as our need increased, God has seen to it that our collection and distribution has grown. We are all blessed to live in a community so willing to give.”
