4343 at the Parkway is teaming up with Refuge house this year in their local toy drive for the children that are in their foster care. Refuge house is a non-profit foster care and adoption agency located in Dallas, TX. Refuge house opened its doors in 2004 when they placed their first 6 children and has grown to serve over 1,000 children through out each year. Refuge house continues to grow each year and is currently serving over 500 foster children.
Participating in the toy drive is easy! There are two ways that you can participate this year:
- Choose a toy from one of the wish lists located in the 4343 at the Parkway clubhouse. We have wish lists ranging from $3.99 per toy to $49.99 and up. Bring in the new and unwrapped toy(s) that you would like to donate to the 4343 clubhouse drop box. If you can not stop by to pick up the wish list the 4343 at the Parkway team can email you a copy.
- Sponsor a Toy: We have numerous toys on the children’s wish list that range anywhere from $55.99 to $199 in value. By sponsoring a toy for a child you will be able to collect donations from family, friends, co-workers, etc. to help purchase this toy. You can choose the toy you wish to sponsor from our sponsored toy list which can be provided by the 4343 at the Parkway team members. We will give you all the marketing material, toy information, and sign up sheet in order to collect the donations for the toy. We ask that you collect the money, purchase the sponsored toy, and bring it to the 4343 clubhouse to be stored until the end of the toy drive. 4343 at the Parkway will not accept cash payment to purchase the toy. If you are unable to reach your goal that is ok! You can bring us the sign up sheet and put the money collected into a Toys R Us gift card to be given to the Refuge House team.
We really hope that this year’s toy drive will be the best ever! The Refuge house is a local foster care program which is why we wanted to sponsor them this year and help out local children in need. The toy drive will run from November 1st, 2010 through December 13th, 2010. We ask that all donated toys be turned into the 4343 at the Parkway donation box by Sunday, December 12th, 2010.
If you have any questions at all about how to participate in this year’s toy drive please give our team a call at 972-818-9090.
