Last year The NOCO Secret Samaritan started a “Free Toy Store” during the holidays for families who couldn’t afford gifts. Here is the Secret Samaritan’s Letter to all of NOCO.
“There are many families that fall through the cracks for different reasons, one of them being that they ‘don’t meet the requirements’ or are ‘unqualified’. We ALL need little miracles. We ALL need hope. We ALL need love and surprises and smiles. So I started to dream…and this is where I need your help! We will once again open a Free Toy Store on December 21st at LoCo Artisan Coffee House. Parents or guardians will be welcome to come pick out a toy to wrap for their children. Children are welcome to come directly to pick out a toy as well. Gift wrapping will be available, thanks to Girl Scout Troop 72274. And this just in: Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there!
If you cannot drop off a toy, but still want to help, you are welcome to send a donation via PayPal and I will purchase toy(s) on your behalf. The SS PayPal account is:
*Note: Secret Samaritan is not an official nonprofit, so your donation is unfortunately not tax deductible, but VERY much appreciated.”
