Family hampers include gifts for children 17 and under. Our goal is to provide approximately $75 worth of toys per child. We aim to provide one or two nice, larger gifts and then some stocking stuffers. We try to keep hampers as equitable as possible. The Campaign is not able to provide bigger ticket items like electronics, bikes, or sporting equipment is challenging for the campaign.
You can support our approach by donating new unwrapped toys under $75 and focusing on gifts that any child would be happy to open.
