Thomas Toy Train Christmas drive

SAFPAW is getting ready for Christmas and the Holidays! Are you with us? Thomas Toy Train SAFPAW Christmas is getting started!

Every year for the past 5 years, we have adopted a trailer park on Dickerson Road. We provide Christmas for every child there and we pay December's rent for someone trying hard but struggling...because keeping someone from being homeless is a lot kinder than waiting till they are homeless to help. And I will be honest, as founder of SAFPAW this is my Holiday present to myself. This makes me so happy. But we need you, every single one of you!

And we need to get started. We need places where we can place huge boxes to hold new toys. We need Elves who will help make Santa proud. We need huge boxes wrapped in holiday paper to hold those new toys.

Now, we do our Christmas program a bit different. We gather together the toys and gifts and put them in the manager's office, and let the parents, grandparents or guardians shop. All the gifts are free for them to pick out, of course. The manager assists with their Holiday shopping. We are the silent Santa. The quiet provider. If there is ever a time of year that no one needs to be reminded that they are battling poverty, it is during the Holidays.

SAFPAW is only there to be Santa's helper and not there to be acknowledged. We are there in the shadows to pay that rent. All the children know is that they have toys and gifts and something cool but warm to wear and diapers for new moms under their tree on Christmas morning.

Are you in? This gift of a program needs about $1,500 to make it work. An abundance of gift donations is needed, but the funds are necessary if we do the shopping. Any funds raised over and above will go towards our cold weather needs for the animals and people we serve year round.

Please, we need your donations. And we need you. We need elves. for online giving
