Black Girl Magic Toy Drive

Holiday Wish has been granting the wishes of the children in agency care since 1963. At FCCS, we believe that all of our children should receive gifts that reflect their culture and celebrate their uniqueness. Since its inception, the program has struggled with meeting the diverse needs of the children we serve, particularly our African-American girls between the ages of 8 and 11. Last year we were able to grant the wishes of over 6,000 children and thanks to our annual Black Girl Magic event, we received the donations needed to meet the needs of our African-American girls. We are increasing efforts to solicit more culturally diverse toys through our Black Girl Magic Toy Drive and would like for you to be a part of spreading the magic! We are asking for items including dolls, action figures, books, hair care products and others that reflect the cultures and identities of children of color.  

How you can help: ATTEND...DONATE...SPREAD THE MAGIC!
