Tully Group has decided to participate as a Toys 4 Tots drop-off for 2018. We are very excited to see what we can do for this incredible organization.
Dixon’s Toys 4 Tots began 51 years ago, and provides blankets, coats, toys, and food to those in need. This year they are expecting between 800-1100 people, most of them needing blankets and coats to stay warm.
Here is some information about the Dixon Toys 4 Tots Program:
Dixon Toys 4 Tots provides for about 250-300 families (about 800-1100 people, 500 of them kids)
They only provide for Dixon residents, in particular they make sure that candidates that do not have food get priority (but all who come get served)
Every single coat that gets donated goes to someone and gets used
They give out approximately 800-1000 coats a year
This is what they are asking for this year…
Coats- new or lightly used, all sizes/styles fur lined coats are highly requested, for special needs children, Toys 4 Tots Dixon needs about 400-500 more to meet their goal
Blankets- new or lightly used, many kids do not have their own blanket, and shared with siblings
Shoes- Last year only one pair was donated. A boy came in with shoes that were falling apart, and was so excited about his new shoes that he ran outside without his new toys.
Socks- The same boy with the shoes did not have socks, and they were somehow able to find a pair that fit him
Games- Something for the whole family to play during the holidays
Toys- new and unwrapped, all ages
Last pick-up will be on December 19th, 2018.
Please consider donating one of the above items, and share our future Facebook posts with your friends. You WILL be making a difference if you donate something, especially if it is a coat.
We are excited to help our community this year, and hope that you can contribute something!
