Toy donations needed to help meet increased need for children this Christmas

GONZALES — It’s a beautiful thought from a local non-profit, to support children in need for Christmas. However, they have received too many applications for help and need even more toy donations to meet the expectations. Toy donations will now be accepted up till Dec. 20, 2023.

Heavens Care is a non-profit organization that helps underprivileged children through various programs and initiatives. From education and healthcare support to sports and essential supplies, Heavens Care is now in full holiday mode to make Christmas special.

“This heartening increase in applicants has brought about an urgent need for additional toy donations to meet the growing demand,” they said in a news release.

The Spirit of Giving Toy Drive gives underprivileged children toys and gifts that they may not otherwise receive.

“We are incredibly grateful for the overwhelming response and the support we have received from our wonderful community,” said Danyell Henriques, spokesperson for Heavens Care. “However, with the increased number of applicants, we are humbly requesting the assistance of our community to help us fulfill the wishes of every child by donating new, unwrapped toys.”

Individuals, organizations, and businesses are encouraged to contribute to Heavens Care’s Spirit of Giving Toy Drive by donating new, unwrapped toys suitable for children of all ages. Toys can be dropped off at:
