While we prepare our homes and vehicles for winter, we want to also focus on our community. Being generous is what we aim to do with our holiday initiative. This year we are impacting two organizations that improve our communities, Toys for Tots and The Children’s Home of York.
Toys for Tots is familiar to many of us because the USMCR promotes all year round for their annual toy drive. They started back in 1947 in Los Angeles, with the hope of spreading good morals and lessons to kids with a gift during Christmas. Major Bill Hendricks started the drive and collected a little over 5,000 presents the first year. After that, the toy drive took off and spread across the United States with the United States Marine Corps Reserve in the lead.
The Children’s Home of York was once an orphanage in York, but has now grown to so much more. In 1865 the orphanage helped children who were without a family or home. They focused on what was best for the kids and finding them the best home. One thing you will notice about the history of this organization is the adaptability. Over the years human services required more family like settings for kids to prosper and grow. The Children’s Home changed their whole process and developed foster homes and group therapy.
Both of these organizations have our best interest in mind and we could not be more excited to support them. While we prepare our families for celebrations, remember those in need this season. A new toy, sweater, or blanket will let a child know they are cared for.
