Together, with the help of our donors, volunteers, corporate, and community partners, we collected and distributed holiday toys to 2,400+ Arizona children in foster care this holiday season.
Preparations for the event began months in advance as the staff and volunteers at Arizona Helping Hands prepared for festivities that spanned the last three months of the year. Starting with client registration in October, a Kick-off Breakfast in November, and our Fill Santa’s Sleigh and Distribution events in December. It was the combined efforts of 250+ volunteers, many groups and organizations who hosted collection drives, and the generosity of the community; who stepped up to make the holidays joyful for Arizona’s children in foster care. We cannot thank you enough for your continued support in Bringing Hope for the Holidays to these very deserving children, teens, and young adults.
“I just can’t believe it! Thank you so much for the sweet gifts for our kiddos, they scored really big this year. Not that it’s ALL about the presents but they will be extra happy Christmas morning. Thanks for all you do for children in foster care.” —Anonymous, Foster Parent
The 23rd Annual Holiday Toy Drive would not have been possible without our sponsors. Arizona Helping Hands is grateful to our corporate and community partners for their commitment to children in foster care and their support in making this year’s event a success!
