Promises2kids’ Give From Your Heart Holiday Gift Drive
The Promises2Kids Give From Your Heart Holiday Gift Drive will collect gifts for items for foster kids for the holidays.
Promises2Kids' Give From Your Heart Holiday Gift Drive starts on Nov. 22nd and ends at a LIVE DRIVE on Monday, Dec. 13th from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Walmart in Kearny Mesa.
Promises2Kids asks for help from San Diegans to donate a new, unwrapped gift at one of the 300 collection bins that will be stationed throughout the county. The organization seeks to exceed the 13,000 gifts that were collected during the 2009 drive. The gifts will be distributed to more than forty partner organizations including the Polinsky Children's Center, Mary's House Transitional Housing Program, local foster homes, and group homes.
Suggested gifts include toys, board games, dolls, books, sporting equipment, bikes, skateboards, age-appropriate DVD's, arts and crafts supplies and gift cards and electronics for teens ages 13 and older. A full wish list can be found on the Promises2Kids website at www.promises2kids.org.
