Every year Bodnar's Auction partners with the Bayard Street Presbyterian Church to hand out as many toys as possible to the children of New Brunswick. We started this 7 years ago and each year the need grows. Last year we handed out over 600 gifts! This year, as we all know, is harder than ever for most. So many families lost their jobs during the pandemic, and so many are struggling to catch up on bills that still need to be paid. In the past 7 years, it has become obvious to us that this event is a significant one. We give out food, coats, clothing, and many other necessities throughout the year. This event provides more than just the basics; it gives a community that is struggling some hope during a season so many of us take for granted. Most of the children save the toy to put under the tree so they have something to open Christmas morning, some are so excited they can't wait. Watching the children open their toys and seeing their excitement is something every parent should be able to have. This year it is more important than ever to dig deep and spread hope and love to these families. Please consider giving so that we can reach as many children and families this season and give them a proper holiday! The toys will be handed out at the Bayard Street Presbyterian Church on Saturday December 16th.
