Christmas will be a little merrier for 120 families in 2015 with 325 children in and near my town. It's our version of Toys for Tots one of the Churches in our area will be holding the event and volunteers will be helping parents select gifts for their children. Each child will receive: One large or two small age-appropriate stuffed animals. One clothing item. A hat and mitten set. A $15 to $20 gift. Five stocking stuffers. In addition, each family will receive one game as well as a blanket. Does your town do anything like this?

@fedupjane Oh yes! There are Christian churches in Israel. @Marcyaz we Church members do activities and parties to celebrate Christmas together but that's all :) Since most of the Christians in Israel are those like us from other countries who come to work here. -- no family and children :) We do raise funds for member who are financially in need or when we need to send out help for people affected by calamities such as storm in the Philippines.

&TiarasOceanView the boys and girl club give out thousand of gifts to children in the Denver area. And we have toys for tots and the Cathiolic church has a homeless sheltar and apartments that families in need can live in for up to a year. They also have a toy drive for all children in need.
