Holiday Toy Drive

June 1, 2016 - December 2, 2016

Holiday Toy Drive

Now thorough December 1, we are collecting new toys or gift cards valued at $15 to be distributed to foster children in Milwaukee this holiday season.

SaintA serves one half of the children in foster care in Milwaukee. We ensure that every one of the 2,500 children we serve has at least one gift to open during the holidays. Often, this is one of few gifts that they will receive.

Take Tommy for instance. At age 7 he had been placed in a foster home because his mother was unable to properly care for him. After being moved from three different foster homes, in December he finally found a home that was a good fit. Tommy was concerned that Santa Clause was not going to find him that year because he had moved so many times. Their foster family had limited funds and any holiday gifts would be necessary items such as clothes, coats and winter boots. But Tommy had his heart set on a Star Wars Lego set he had seen on a recent trip to the store. Knowing the financial situation of the family, his SaintA Case Manager surprised them with a gift from the SaintA Holiday Toy Drive. His foster mother reported back that Tommy was ecstatic on Christmas morning when he opened his Star Wars Lego set. “Santa found me!” he exclaimed.
