Peg's Presents www.PegsPresents.org is a giving foundation in the name of Margaret "Peg" Romano (who I was lucky enough to call my Mom). Peg adored children, welcoming over a dozen foster children into her home over the years. Besides children, she loved gift giving, so the idea of providing presents to children in need is the perfect way to honor her memory.


We are also honored to work with Dignity Housing of Philadelphia, whose mission is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty that confronts low-income families and individuals in Philadelphia by providing safe, decent affordable housing, promoting self-sufficiency, and creating opportunities beyond expectations.
Many of the mothers at Dignity Housing are not able to give their children birthday and Christmas presents, and that's where we come in. Peg's Presents will be providing gifts to children in need to let kids enjoy being kids and bring some smiles to all "” givers & receivers "” along the way.
We already reached our initial goal of $400.00 for the IRS 501C3 paperwork, and now we're going to be purchasing gifts for children in need which will allow us to help even more kids smile.
Please know that ANY amount will help :)

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

A Smile Like This One Needs YOU

It’s so true — we need YOUR help to help us bring a smile like this to children in need this holiday season.

How can you help, you may ask? That’s the easy part!

You can donate via www.gofundme.com/pegspresents — or, you can mail a new toy to our office: Sparkle Plenty (c/o Peg’s Presents) 525 S. Fourth Street, Suite #242, Philadelphia, PA 19147 – or, if you’re in the neighborhood. feel free to drop by and leave your gift. We accept new toys for children from 1 month old babies to 17 year old boy & girls (no stuffed animals please, as we have a current stockpile).

As always, THANK YOU for helping us do what we do!
