Poverello House says toy donations are at a critical low level. Gifts for all ages 0-16 are needed to fulfill the holiday needs. Toys for children will be accepted until 6 p.m. on Tuesday, December 24th.
Statement from the Staff of Poverello House:
"This year has been especially difficult for our families and we expect the need will be greater than ever before. Sadly we are short of toys and don't expect to receive any more from local agencies. We are asking for help from our generous donors and this amazing community to make sure each needy child receives a gift on Christmas morning."
