We at Newton Pediatric Dentistry are pleased to share that we are hosting a holiday toy drive for local children in foster care. Please join us as we collect brand new toys, clothes, and gift cards for children ages 2-16. These gifts will be directly handed over to the Department of Children and Families which has a long list of children in need. Anything and everything is appreciated whether it be a gift card to Shaws or a toy for a youngster. Please deliver the toys unwrapped.
If you would like to shop for an older child, please note the following which was received from DCF:
“We have a large number of teenagers, and often this is a group that gets left out as many people prefer to shop for
younger children. Teenagers especially love the chance to go shopping to choose some items for
themselves. Therefore, donations of gift certificates to Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Old Navy, The Gap, Best
Buy, Target, Wal-Mart, are extremely helpful to us in meeting the needs of thousands of teenagers.
Donations may be made out to: “DCF Kids Fund Inc.“
Children in foster care and those in families who receive these services are the Commonwealth’s most at-risk children. They have suffered more losses and hardships in their young lives than most adults. Your support significantly builds their feelings of self-worth and brings a ray of sunshine into their lives at the holidays.
Thank you for your care. We will be open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10am-6pm.
