PREMIER LIFESTYLE EVENT COMMUNITY
2017 Toy Donations
Our Children's Charity Information
Lifestyle Connections stands by several core beliefs and one that is most
dear to our hearts is our charity work. Again, this year we Strongly
encourage you to donate a new unwrapped child’s toy or TOYS! We have
worked with Kids first of the Carolinas for the last 4 years and again this
year, with your help, we will provide Gifts for several hundred LOCAL less
fortunate children this holiday season!
A little about Kids first and why we have supported them for over 4 years!
For many families in our community, Christmas is a luxury. This is why for over 25 years, Kids First of the Carolinas has committed to providing Christmas to thousands of children and families in need. Every year, we throw a Christmas party of epic proportions for almost 500 children and senior citizens. There will be a wonderful meal, fun Christmas music, gifts, dancing, entertainment, and of course, Santa arriving by a red helicopter!
We receive no federal or state funding, therefore we must rely on local businesses and individuals like you, to provide us with necessary resources, hoping to fulfill this commitment to our community. We identify these families through a vast network of sponsors, teachers, guidance counselors, social workers, neighborhood leaders, family, friends and co-workers.
Help is discreet and immediate. Each child is asked for a wish list. Many only ask for food, clothing, shoes, or socks. We try to give each child two wishes and clothing. These gifts are wrapped, ready to be placed under the tree. If they don’t have a tree, we can provide that too. Every year, the real work begins the day after the party, as our amazing, wonderful volunteers continue to help those in need, out of our donated store front right up till Christmas day! www.kidsfirstofthecarolinas.org
We SINCERELY appreciate your willingness to help and support these local kids. This is why we do what we do and its because of your support and encouragement that enables us to make such an impact!
