Urgent Need at Rose Garden Mission for Christmas Toys!
The Rose Garden Mission in Covington was blessed for several years with thousands of toys from a major donor, for which they are extremely grateful. However, they just learned that this donor will no longer be able to help. Most entities who assist non-profits have already arranged who they are donating to this year. Therefore the Mission is sending out a plea for help for donated new toys (unwrapped new toys, gift cards, cash!)
if you need an address to send toys to which you order online, OR if you need toys picked up - please contact Sarah Cecil (859-653-4027; RGMhelpers [at] gmail [dot] com) You may also drop your donation off at the Mission, 2040 Madison Ave. (let them know it's for their Christmas toy drive).
The Mission gives Christmas toys to children ages infants to teens who are signed up with them. The Sisters like to keep the toys clear of an evil nature. A few guidelines:
- Yes to toys such as board games, legos, baby dolls, cars, craft kits, nail polish kits, sport balls
- No to toys that present an evil nature (e.g. Monster High, Zombies)
- No toys that are magic in nature. (e.g. Magic kits, Fairies, Wizards, Sorcerers)
- No toys with talk back animation. (e.g. Furby, Angela, Ginger)
