Toy Store, Meals & More

 

Give a family a holiday season to remember by hosting a clothing or toy donation drive, volunteering at our Toy Store, or contributing a monetary gift to our Holiday Program.

Every holiday season, Safe & Sound’s Toy Store provides free toys, books & clothing to nearly 400 children, as well as warm & nourishing meals to help families enjoy the festivities of the season. With trying times everyone is facing right now due to COVID-19, these families need your help more than ever.
