During the holiday season funds raised during various events held throughout the year are used to provide food to area food pantries and soup kitchens and provide gifts for children in the Rochester, NY area. The board members and other volunteers shop for food, toys and clothes to be distributed during the holiday season. Volunteers also assist in the wrapping and distribution of these gifts. If you or your organization are interested in volunteering for gift wrapping or any other Holiday Event please contact
We are looking forward to this coming year!
Each year we provide Thanksgiving food baskets for families in need at the First Genesis Baptist Church. We will be doing this on Saturday, November 21st.
Each year teams of volunteers go out and purchase toys and gifts at deep discount. Buying toys and gifts on these two days is how we can provide three toys
for each child in need.
On Big Buying Day we purchase all of the rest of the toys and gifts that we need that were not purchased on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Our Big Buying Day this year will be on Saturday, December 12th.
All of the toys and gifts will need to be wrapped on this day - usually more than 1,500 toys and gifts will need to be wrapped. If you are interested in helping out please get a hold of us through our Contact Us page.
Toy Wrapping Day will be on December 19th.
We deliver to all of the families that are referred to us.
We do these deliveries on the 23rd and 24th of December. Each year Van Bortel Ford and U-Haul of Western NY donate vehicles for our delivery - without these donated vehicles there is no way we could deliver to all of our families.
