We act as a resource for all things fun a child or teen that needs to smile within organizations dedicated to providing care for them in difficult situations. Our help varies by location because we realize every organization has needs unique to them. Some examples of the kind of help we provide are: monthly birthdays, monthly toy drops that are easy to store (we realize storage limitations are a thing), and bulk donations on a yearly basis. Those are just examples, not limitations. Any organization we provide assistance to we want to truly help in the way it is needed.
We do our best to make receiving our donation easy. We provide an itemized list of what is included and label the boxes. If you have multiple locations, we will label accordingly to help your volunteers and staff with making sure it gets to where it needs to go.
We have made exceptions on a case by case basis for local organizations that have children facing difficult situations that need a smile.
