Every year at Christmas time the Harvest Compassion Center has a blast handing out brand new Christmas toys for free to girls and boys of all ages. Last December we handed out 500 toys and this year we hope to surpass that number! Currently we are in the process of bagging and organizing the toys so families can pick out that perfect surprise gift for their loved one. The HCC hands out toys right up to Christmas Eve, so if you live in the Phoenix area and want to donate a new toy please drop off all toys during our regular store hours: Monday and Wednesday 9 am to noon and Saturdays 2-4:30pm.
This will be the third year in a row that the HCC will hand out toys; the motivation came from a single mom 3 years ago, when she came in and asked if we had anything to give her two kids for Christmas. Unfortunately, on that day we had nothing. Our director felt the weight of her sadness and disappointment and made it a priority to never be in that situation again. Over the past three years the HCC has handed out over 1,500 brand new toys in December… a true blessing for each and every family who walk away with a smile on their face and toys in hand!
