It’s Toy Time! Most children and adolescents residing in foster care or receiving preventive care, including the Services Training Education Prevention Self-help (STEPS) Program, are victims of some kind of abuse or abandonment. The EGSCF Annual Toy Drive, which takes place between November and the third week of December, helps to put a smile on a child’s face every Holiday Season.
During this time of year, we collaborate with individual and corporate donors who share the vision to ensure that all children and adolescents in our care receive the special gift that they have been wishing for throughout the year. If you have toys or your organization would like to plan a mini-toy drive on behalf of EGSCF please contact Heather Thompson, Communication Information Resource Specialist, at (212) 437-3568 for further details. Your contributions of toys or monetary donations are most appreciated!
All EGSCF office sites serve as drop-off sites for the public to bring toys.
