Check out your local churches. Toys for Tots operated by the Marines. Salvation Army??? You probably can get gr8 deals at thriftshops if you explain the situation, my hubby just got a big discount on 10 dictionaries for his students!

It depends on what type of help you need. I haven't heard of any charities that help with adult gifts unless the person lives in a group home of some kind. Speak to the pastor of your church, sometimes a church will take up a special offering for a needy member of the congregation. Call 211, it is a nationional clearing house that keeps a list of different organizations that provide different types of help. It is called HELPLINE! There is also the Salvation Army. However at this date, a lot of the charities have taken all the applications they can handle. They also have people fill out applications and provide gross income.


All any kid needs is one gift a piece from their parents. They also must have grandparents, aunts and uncles that send gifts. Kids also don't need any of the expensive things they see advertised on TV or things with designer labels on them. Shop thrift stores, dollar stores. Most of all plan ahead, don't wait until the last minute to start your shopping. I start in January and have been all done for more than a month. That is the only way I have ever been able to do Christmas. My kids have never got anything advertised on TV or with a designer label on it.

Thats the worst advice, most parents dont want to give there children junk! Christmas is one of the most magical amazing times of the year and they deserve to get awesome great things atleast once a year! I think thats so rotten the way you think, my kids have tons of name brand clothes and shoes cause i like them to look good why wouldnt you want them to look there best obviously they wear normal clothes like disney stuff ad other cute things..and i dont make tons of money at all but its doable, your theory on gifts for kids not needing more than just one!


And shopping at dollar stores!? Is just cold! most parents wouldnt want that advice obviously they want to be able to give which is why theyre looking for the toy drive

first of all tiffany lets look at reality shall we? some families dont have the luxury of having the finances you have so whatever they can get for their children IS thinking of them, a name brand does not designate whether you love them, ..the reason why you do it does

My sister and mom said go to pro-cap in pProvidence and ask about toys for tots and they said there are a couple churches. Good luck I posted this again cause it kept saying my other one didn't post. I hope this one does.
