We need you!
Economic hardships still plague our local communities. Many unemployed workers have run out of unemployment checks. Families are hurting...real hunger is being experienced by many...and the very thought of Christmas presents for the kids this year doesn’t seem to be likely. Many of our PMBA families are facing a “bleak” Christmas unless we step in to make a difference in a totally confidential way! Remember, members of our congregations can either shop at one of the Toy Stores OR the church can delegate a leader to shop for a particular family and deliver the toys to that family! Help us spread the joy!
Many agencies offer help at Christmas time — and they do a wonderful job. However, the Baptist Toy Stores consistently provide toys, Christian counseling with parents, and Bibles/ devotional material for each family. We also do follow-up with our families once the Toy Stores are over. Every year we have professions of faith, rededications, and families joining some of our congregations. In 2012 we had four families to join a PMBA congregation from the efforts of our Toy Stores. Your contributions will help us reach our local communities and share the “light” in a dark world!
Christmas in July
Get a head start on collecting those toys! Why not have "Christmas in July" or "August"? Here are two good months to promote the Baptist Toy Stores in your church. We can provide special bulletins and promotional materials. Just let Karen know when you want to promote the Baptist Toy Stores in your church!
Toys can be donated through December 20; however, we need the bulk of our toys by December 12! Toys should be valued between $10-$25 each. Look for those special sales. Many times toys valued for $25 can be bought for $15 or less if you watch for the special sales. Toys can be taken to one of the Toy Store sites listed above. You can always bring them to the PMBA and they will be shared with the Toy Store you indicated or all the Toy Stores if you don't indicate a specific one.
