On yet another Thanksgiving eve the 2009 holiday season is right around the corner. These tough economic times will certainly have an impact on the holidays, just like everything else in your life, but it has allowed us a chance to get back to the true spirit of the holidays. Spending time with family, giving back to others and sharing genuine joy and compassion are worth much more than any present, and no one knows this better than the Support Center for Child Advocates.
PRowl Public Relations is honored to work for the Support Center for Child Advocates this holiday season to further their mission of providing a protective, nurturing environment for abused and neglected Philadelphia area children. A large part of their mission is their annual Holiday Toy Drive, where businesses and individuals alike donate thousands of toys to these children and their siblings.
“I am a big believer in ‘to whom much is given, much is required.’ What an amazing feeling it is to know that because of Child Advocates, hundreds and hundreds of kids will wake up on Christmas morning with presents under the tree – many of whom would otherwise have none. This will be the 4th year I’ve been a part of the Toy Drive, and I can honestly say that I can’t imagine a Christmas season without participating” says Adrienne Simmons, Child Advocates Volunteer Toy Drive Co-Chair and Founder of P.S. I Love You.
The Support Center for Child Advocates Holiday Toy Drive will be held this year on Saturday, December 19, 2009.
