RVA KIDS: Christmas Toy Drive

Hello, my name is Lance and I'm a community leader/youth program director located in Richmond, Virginia. You may know me from the success of my water relief mission for Flint, others might be familiar with my dedication to giving back in the Richmond community.

Christmas Is The Spirit of Giving

This year I am excited to announce that I’ll be partnering with the Virginia based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization From Prison to Promise to host our annual Toy Drive in Richmond.

The mission is on to collect as many toys as possible for children in Richmond, Virginia. During our last toy drive, we collected and distributed 2,000 new unwrapped toys, electronics and bicycles for children in need, children of homeless parents, and children of incarcerated parents.

We also gave 100 kids Christmas shopping sprees.

Christmas Meals

We will be distributing Christmas dinners and giving away holiday food baskets.

Many families are struggling to pay bills, buy food, and other needs this Holiday Season so my goal is to make this Christmas one to remember for hundreds of kids in need.

Please consider making a donation to give-a-gift for a child or provide a meal for a family like you would do your own. Any size donation is appreciated. No amount is too small.

If we reach our Christmas goal the remaining balance from our donations will go towards helping other organizations clear their Christmas wish lists for kids.

Thank you for joining me again in supporting our youth. The thought of any child waking up on Christmas morning without a gift is heartbreaking. All children deserve a great Christmas.
