It's that time of the year! When we run around like crazy to buy gifts, decorate, bake delicious sweets, and spread the joy of the holiday season.
In all of the hustle and bustle of Christmas, we sometimes forget what the season is truly about. It's about giving. It's about love. It's about peace. And we can provide all of that to children with one simple, thoughtful gift.
That's what Toys for Tots is all about. It's not about buying things for kids. It's about showing kids that we see them. We care about them. We want to help even though we are strangers. It's a perfect message of giving, love, and peace all wrapped up in the shape of a toy.
