It’s that time of the year for the annual Christmas toy drive!
The Christmas tree is decorated and all lit up with hundreds of tiny sparkling lights and colorful, shining, ornaments. You can hear holiday music playing in the background. The kids are starting to arrive with their parents and guardians. Santa’s helper is getting ready, putting final touches on his suit, combing his hair and smoothing down his mustache and beard before donning his hat. The elves are making sure they have all the names of all the children and what they wished for. They are filling Santa’s magic bag with wonderful toys for all the boys and girls.
This year there is an added present for one and all! There are brand new coats and sweaters and thermal wear! And blankets too! Hats, gloves and scarves in beautifully festive colors complete the sets. These wonderful additions were donated by all the caring citizens of the community.
Santa’s special chair is set up in front of the wonderfully created backdrop done by Step and Repeat LA. The backdrop is perfect for photo shoots with all the children and visitors. Red carpet and stanchions are set up to guide each child right to Santa.
Adults and children will benefit from this Christmas give-away. Each will receive the winter warm-up packages that will help with the winter weather.
Santa arrives with his big bag of toys and the additional presents are stacked up next to him where the elves can participate in handing them out. The children can barely contain their excitement! Oh boy!
Is your town or community having a toy drive? This year, why not get donations for a winter weather package, too?
Believe me, it’s a gift that keeps giving .
Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
