The recipients of the toy drive are already accounted for and will be distributed amongst children in the inner city of Richmond, who have been specifically handed a ticket. The DG Foundation dispersed 500 tickets that qualify them to receive one present on Sunday, December 22. The themed event will include a Santa Claus station, holiday music, free giveaways, and more fun filled things to do for the children invited.
“It was fun hanging out with the kids and families. I served food and even did an art project with the kids from the Mindful Life Program. Anytime I come and give back, everyone is so appreciative”
The foundation can still use donations to make this memorable event more special. Ways to contribute include donating unopened toys, individual or corporate tax deductible monetary donations, locations to set up toy collection boxes, gift wrapping material donations, and food & drink donations to provide the day of. With the help of supporters, we can maximize on the event and spread an even greater holiday cheer throughout.
