Well if someone could not afford to buy any gifts for their children, seems to me seeing the kids happy after opening ANY gift would be worth it

It goes to show just how pathetic parts of our "society" are, wondering if Free gifts are "worth it", sure your kids will grow up to be real pillars of the community.

Even more amazing is how many people drive up to pick up their toys for tots in their new SUV's and Caddys

I guess I should have stated that alittle different. I have to drive 2 n a half hours to get the gifts my children were approved for, the only gift they will have under the tree. Just thought if it was something I could get with the gas money I will spend to get there and back, I would just buy them myself and those gifts could go to another less fortunate family. Sorry if I didn't get into details about it.

You come and get the toys and I'll buy you a tank of gas.

On this subject, does anyone know of an organization that will take used toys for children? It doesn't have to be for Christmas necessarily. I have several baby/toddler toys that are in excellent condition, all look brand new, that I would like to give away to a needy child/children as opposed to it just going to a thrift store. Toys for Tots won't take them because they have to be new in a box, and that's fine, I understand. Does anyone know if any of the children's hospitals or even Ronald McDonald house takes items like this?

I know Lebohnuer takes them. My son is in and out of Lebohnuer all year along cause he has a lung disease and they try to take donations and buy toys for the sick children who have to stay there. I'm sure if you called them and ased for Child's Life, they will be glad to take them.

I tried to get help from the toys for tots cause my husband had recently been laid off from work cause work was to slow and he only needed a few people. I called the DHS office and they told me to contact the toys for tots. As sad as it sounds they told me they couldn't help me cause they had a deadline and if u didn't sign up in time, they can't help you. I wasn't expecting my husband to be laid off and my kids do with out christmas. So if anyone knows of any more organizations helping could you please let me know. I have three young boys. I will appreciate any information.
