Who is The Nest and What is the Reindeer Express?
The Nest – Center for Women, Children & Families’ 39 th Annual Reindeer Express event assists families with children five years-of-age and younger who have received services from The Nest in 2016. These families are provided new toys, coats, hats, scarves, gloves, books, and art supplies, as well as a food box for their holiday celebrations! This is the only time of year that they ask for new items to ensure that the children have a Happy Holiday. This year, they estimate that they will have approximately 725 children in need of new gifts and winter wear. That is over 430 families that will be helped this holiday season!
For 2016 The Nest has asked if PWF could help with the following donations:
* Rolls of Christmas wrapping paper – Each family receives a roll of wrap for the gifts they select from the donated toys for their children
*Board games for families with children 5 yrs and under – Each family receives a board game in addition to the age appropriate toys that the parent selects
*Winter Coat for boys and girls sizes 4T to 6X – Each child receives a winter coat in addition to the toys
The PWF Dreambuilders’ Goal for this collection: 39 rolls of holiday wrap; 20 board games; and 10 new coats
Please bring donated items to the December 7 PWF meeting.
As you are out and about shopping for Thanksgiving festivities, please take a moment and put an item in your cart for The Reindeer Express.
They will be delivered to The Nest in time for this annual event. If you would like to support this festive project but skip the shopping, then your cash donation or a check to The Nest would be much appreciated.
Thank you from Melissa Bright and the Dreambuilders’ Committee
