have been informed that there will be a need for children’s
gifts and toys for the holidays. We would hope you can open
your hearts and help alleviate some of the suffering for the

American Center, Emerald Isle Immigration Center, NY Irish
Center in Queens, have confirmed their help as drop off
points and help to get volunteers… Navillus is providing
storage units to hold the toys down at one of the rescue
sites and will give us the tents for the Breakfast. They
are also making available a truck for pick-up of
toys at various locations.
We need toys, toys, and more toys. There are
thousands of children that have been displaced. We need
more drop off centers ~ we need volunteers and sponsors. We
need a “Christmas Angel”

their parent’s faces. Letting them rebuild their memories
