WHAT WE DO!
The primary goal of the Foundation is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate children that will assist them into becoming responsible, and productive. The kids who will receive the gifts are from very low income families, for some of them, it will be their first brand new toy ever received at Christmas. The average household income of the surrounding neighborhood is less than $26,000 for the year and income per capita is approximately $12,905.
