There are only three days left to throw your support behind the Toy Factory, an initiative taken by The Idea Factory that is bringing toys to children in single parent families this Christmas. The Idea Factory have donated $10,000 in new toys to the Single Parent Association of Newfoundland (SPAN) and are challenging the rest of St. John’s and it’s business community to come together to do the same.
All the information you need is on the Toy Factory’s website, along with a list of people, businesses and organizations that have contributed so far. You can be on that list, too! If you’d like you can buy the gifts yourself, or simply donate money and let the Toy Factory’s elves take care of the rest. Either way, they’ll swing round and collect what you have to offer at your convenience. It’s that easy.
SPAN also has a Christmas Supports program in place wherein you can sponsor a single parent family and help ease the burden of toys and groceries this Christmas. If you’d like to learn more about how to get involved with that program, just give Melanie Escott a call at (709) 738-3405. She’s awesome.
Are there any other ways that you know of for people to get involved in helping others over the holidays? Something you like to do that we should know about? Let us know in the comments!
