The Toy Sale, established in 2009, offers parents that visit our ministry centers throughout the year a chance of purchasing Christmas gifts for children in their household with dignity. They are able to select from brand new gifts that donors would give their own children. For our families, the gifts are affordable, most gifts are less than $1.00 each and bikes are $3.00. Parents are not given a handout, but a hand up.
Up to 300 families identified as having a need for support and services are selected from clients that came through the MBA ministry centers, churches, and local partner ministries to shop each year. All of the children’s gifts are donations received from MBA churches, partner organizations, and community collections. Every worker volunteers. The money raised from the parents shopping benefits future clients of Love Loud Montgomery and Community of Hope.
Your financial gift today will be used to help purchase gifts for the toy sale in a COVID safe manner. We are asking at least 250 households to contribute $50 each. As a result of the financial impact on many families from COVID, we anticipate this year’s sale to be much larger and support many more families than in previous years.
Thank you for your gift!
