At St. Francis Center, the spirit of giving thrives throughout the entire year. However, when the holiday season arrives, our dedication to our hardworking clients goes even further. In the early morning hours on two special days in December, parents eagerly gather outside for the annual Toy Program Giveaway—an event that brings joy and smiles to their families.
Our dedicated volunteers are there every step of the way, providing invaluable assistance to each mother and father as they carefully select two new toys or age-appropriate gifts for each of their beloved children. This heartwarming tradition is made possible by the generosity of our community. Every year, local churches, civic organizations, and individuals come together to donate an astounding 5,000 new toys and wrapping paper.
At St. Francis Center, we believe in the magic of giving, and it’s during these special moments that we witness the true essence of compassion and community coming together to brighten the holidays for those we serve.
