This Eid, we want every deserving child whose family receives assistance from the MCC congregation to celebrate Eid with a new, gift-wrapped toy in hand.
Come join Girl Scouts Troop 30875 and help wrap toys from MCC’s Toy Drive for zakat-eligible families this Ramadan. All ages welcome. Kids encouraged to come help.
Please bring gift wrapping supplies (wrapping paper, tape, etc.) and join in on the fun.
We will be wrapping toys that have been collected prior to the event and prepare them for distribution.
If you would like to donate a toy, feel free to bring it in and drop it off in the bins for our next wrapping get together.
11 a.m. to 1 p.m. | Saturday, May 11 & Sunday, May 19
Please help Girl Scouts Troop 30875 support MCC’s Toy Drive for Zakat eligible families. We are hoping to brighten the Eid celebration for as many of the families’ children as possible. Please consider choosing an option from the below Amazon link (will be shipped directly to MCC) or drop off any unwrapped toys in the bins at MCC (any day starting April 12th until May 19).
Keep in mind we are hoping to share gifts that these children may not typically have access to. *Toys should be new/unused.* If you donate a toy that needs batteries, please attach a set to the toy.
Please avoid the following:
• Dollar store or similar quality
• No clothing
• Violent toys (guns, swords or what may otherwise be considered violent)
• Toys of inappropriate nature
Additionally, we are collecting gifts for older children so consider a gift card (which can be marked Toy Drive and left with the MCC office) or other options suitable for teen girls and boys.
