Each year in Forsyth County, hundreds of parents struggle to make the holidays special for their families. Join us this year, as we invite you to bless these families by contributing to the 4th Annual Holiday House. The Holiday House is a place where parents can shop for gifts specifically for their children. This year’s event will take place on Thursday, December 13th & Friday, December 14th as well as Monday, December 17th & Tuesday, December 18th. How can you help? The Place of Forsyth County has three ways to help – donate, sponsor or volunteer.
We are seeking donations for all ages. We ask that all items donated are new, except for good condition used bicycles and gaming systems.
Some ideas to generate donations:
- Put a donation box in high traffic area in your business.
- Offer a % off on an item or service in your business.
- Bring a toy, get a raffle ticket to win an item or service of your choice.
- Purchase a gift card (Target, Old Navy, or Walmart) and automatically have a free one donated to the Holiday House.
- Match toy donation with a financial contribution to Holiday House.
- Collect stocking stuffer bags for ages 0-18.
- Collect or provide gift wrap, tape, bows, and ribbons.
- Create a bin to collect toy donations from your neighborhood. Items like used bikes, gaming systems, holiday decorations and Christmas lights are also very helpful!
- Provide food, drinks, and volunteers in the kids and volunteer hospitality rooms.
Please note: donations can be delivered to Freedom Tabernacle or picked up on Number 27th-29th and December 4th-6th between 10am-3pm.
