Squeals of laughter as the presents are torn open. Ribbons, bows, gasps of surprise at the wonder of it all. These visions an important part of the holidays, creating memories that last a lifetime.
But there are families in Boulder County who cannot afford to share this joy. Since 1972, Share-A-Gift, Inc. has been helping families celebrate the holidays. At our annual “Toy Shop,” parents pick the stuffed animals, dolls, bicycles, games and other treasures to choose holiday gifts for their children.
Volunteers donate their time to make this program an annual success. Gently used toys, bicycles, and books, as well as some new toys, are donated by the Boulder Valley community. Last year, we helped over 1,490 children from birth to age 14, feel the spirit of the holidays through this generosity.
This year’s Toy Shop is on Saturday, December 14th, so our collection time is brief.
Please join us in this truly worthwhile effort by contributing to Share-A-Gift this year. Information about how to donate or volunteer can be found on our website, ShareAGift.org. Checks can also be made out to Share-A-Gift and mailed to us at: Share-A-Gift, PO Box 17595, Boulder, CO. 80308. 100% of your tax-deductible donation provides holiday cheer to children. It's a great way to be one of Santa’s elves!
If you have any questions regarding our program, please contact us at: info@ShareAGift.org.
We send you our best wishes for the coming holiday season!
