GWA recently held a holiday toy drive as part of our GWA Gives Program. With the generous help of our clients and friends, we collected more than 50 toys for children in need. To deliver them, we hooked up with the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County (CAC) as part of their 2018 Holiday Project.

GWA Gives Away Pie During CAC Holiday Toy Drive

As our way of saying thank you, clients and friends who delivered toys were able to take home a pie for Thanksgiving. Not surprising, the most requested pie for this event was apple. In all, we collected 19 toy vehicles, 10 action figures, 7 educational toys, a handful of balls and a host of other fun toys and games.

The donated toys will stock the shelves of the CAC’s Holiday Shop. This shop offers non-offending caregivers the ability to “shop” for their children at no charge, enabling them to provide the children with presents this holiday season. According to the CAC, this project ensures that children served by the center have the joyful holiday they deserve. The CAC is expected to serve nearly 1,000 children this year.
