Every kid deserves to enjoy happy holidays. But hundreds of parents in PRISM’s service area struggle to make ends meet. Putting food on the table, keeping the lights on, paying the rent, and providing proper winter clothes are their challenges and priorities. There just isn’t any money left for presents at the holidays.

In December of each year PRISM’s Holiday Toy Shoppe puts a little magic into their holiday season, and makes a joyful, exciting holiday possible for 1,000+ kids.

How can I help families in need of gifts?
