Care for Real toy drive provided gifts to 800 children

Care for Real distributed toy drive donations to families on Tuesday, December 17. Executive Director Lyle Allen described this as their best year ever in terms of quantity and quality of donations. According to the Care for Real Facebook page gifts were provided for over 800 children.

Thank you to everyone who donated either at a drop of site or via the Amazon wish list. I cannot thank you personally since although I could see things disappearing from the wish list, Amazon didn’t show who was buying them. The shipments all went directly to Care for Real. Whoever you are please know that your generosity is greatly appreciated.

I was not able to attend the toy distribution, but I was sent some pictures of what was clearly an amazing day.


The toy drive is only a small part of what Care for Real does for the Edgewater community. They are also our neighborhood food bank. You can support them with by giving a monetary gift online here.
