Mission Accomplished – Toy donations needed for ChildSavers

Updated! 12/18/2017: A Thank You from Sarah Konigsburg at Childsavers

Thank you to everyone who immediately responded to our need for toys by donating or by helping us spread the word. Because of you, there were enough toys for each child to be gifted exactly what they wanted! Within hours of the news going out that we needed help, we had over 40 neighbors drop off piles and piles of toys. We even had some very young helpers share gifts they had received for themselves. Our staff was deeply moved by your generosity, your stories about why you chose to give, and your hugs.

The children we serve look forward to this party every year. One child shared with us that she had been dreaming about the party all week. All children deserve to have a happy holidays and your selflessness put smiles on hundreds of excited children’s faces. We are endlessly grateful for your support. Thank you again.

From Alli:

Hello Church Hillians and beyond —

Our good neighbor ChildSavers provides vital trauma-informed therapy to young children to teens in the Richmond area and they need our help.

Some of you may be aware that the ChildSavers is having its annual Holiday party for the children on 12/14. Some folks from the neighborhood are volunteering their time but we now have just heard [that for various reasons they need need toys TODAY].

Now we need to jump into action and help ChildSavers and the children served by them by as many of us as possible purchasing toys and delivering them to the center at 200 N 22nd St. Unwrapped or wrapped with a note about the toy on the outside.

Hope you can help. This is the info we were given by center staff.

The main ages that they need help with are 8-12 year olds, but there are some teens and they said that they also could make use of of some infant aged gifts.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Legos
  • Barbies – all races
  • Dolls – all races including soft body ones for infant/ toddler
  • Board games – trouble, candy lane, connect four, hungry hungry hippos, word up,etc
  • Balls- basketball, football, soccer, etc
  • Action figures – transformers, G.I. Joe, etc
  • Craft kits – jewelry, play-doh
  • Blocks
  • Vehicles – dump trucks, cars, etc.
  • Stuffed toys
  • Musical instruments
  • Puzzles – board
