The Spirit of Giving has been a part of WRC for over ten years and is a favorite event of the staff. The event is all about the children at WRC and providing them with treasured holiday memories. During that event WRC will provide approximately 100-115 families with all the makings for a Happy Holidays. The event is held every year on the second Saturday of the month.
With help from supporter’s donations, WRC will have the parents choose 3 new toys for each child and they are wrapped by an amazing group of volunteers. For the harder to shop for teens, each is given a $25 gift card to Target and 2 items from the gift room. It is such a rewarding time to allow these families an opportunity they wouldn’t otherwise have. The family will be gifted a $50 gift card to purchase all the makings for their holiday dinner and breakfast from a local grocer.
For the children in the family the Spirit of Giving is like one big Christmas Party. We have a separate area that they spend their time meeting Santa, creating holiday crafts, playing games, and eating holiday goodies. They are not left out of the gift giving we have a special room full of cozy and festive gifts to choose from for their parents. The time and thought each of them take to make sure it is the perfect gift is precious.
SPIRIT OF GIVING 2020
This will be WRC’s 14th annual Spirit of Giving. Every year WRC serves over 120 families with over 250 children. For many of our families this will be their first peaceful holiday. We believe this event is the best part of the whole year. We count on the community to help us make this happen.
Due to covid-19 we are going skip the party this year but we are still dedicated to providing 3 toys for each child in our program and gift cards for teens and for groceries.
We are asking all of our supporters, volunteers and community partners to help us provide these families with a happy holiday. Please help us by organizing a toy drive or just by providing a toy or a gift card. Donations can also be made below; 100% of funds donated will be used to purchase toys and gifts for the children in our program.
We are asking to have all donations to our office at 1963 Apple street, Oceanside CA, 92054 by Monday December 7th. We will begin distributing toys on Tuesday December 8th.
Thank you for your spirit of generosity and kindness.
