Affordable Christmas – Giving Gifts – Giving Value



 

How It Works:

  • Affordable Christmas empowers low-income families with the opportunity to purchase gifts at an affordable cost. This allows parents to provide gifts for their children while maintaining their dignity.
  • We collect new toys which we then price at roughly 1/10th of the original retail value.
  • Families will be screened and invited to participate by our partnering Desoto County schools, located in Southaven.

When:

  • You may drop items at Trinity by December 6, 2017, or schedule a pickup.
  • Donated gift distribution will be on December 9, 2017 beginning at 9am.
  • You may drop items at the Trinity office, or schedule a pickup.

How You Can Help:

    Donate

  • New, unused toys and gifts (see information flyer for full shopping list)
  • Monetary gifts that will be used to purchase gifts.
  • Host a toy drive at your workplace, church, community organization, etc.
  • * Note: No single donated gift should be more than $20-$30 in value as the goal is to provide a maximum number of families with opportunities for reasonable items rather than providing larger items for only a few families.
