With the holiday season nearly upon us, it’s time to start thinking about the gifts that you’ll be getting for your kids this year. In an effort to clear up space for new toys, you can start the tradition of donating some old toys to charity each Christmas season. Tell your children that in order to get new toys, they need to share their old ones with some less fortunate children. Some of us here at Coppin’s Gifts do this with our kids, and we think it’s a wonderful tradition—and it helps instill a sense of goodwill and charity.
- You should think about donating your children’s toys to a medical center in your area. Helping out sick kids during the holiday season is very special. These are the kids that can really use the fun and laughter that toys can bring.
- You can also choose a national organization. Some of these organizations require that you donate new toys, so make sure that you read the guidelines. Toys for Tots collects toys for children from October through December each year.
- Donate some of your used children’s toys to Goodwill or another local organization. You can even bring your kids with you when you drop the toys off. This way they’ll be part of the process.
- It might also be helpful to call a social service agency to see how you could donate toys to homeless shelters, orphanages, and other similar programs.
Help make the holiday season brighter for kids in your area. Spread the joy! Happy Holidays from Coppin’s Gifts.
