Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the support of our partners Meijer and WaterStone Bank, thousands of our members are opening presents this holiday season as part of our annual Click for Kids Online Toy Drive and Wrap Party. Meijer is donating nearly 6,000 gifts and matching donations made by generous individuals. With Club holiday parties kicking off last week, the joy and excitement on the faces of our kids has been amazing to see.
Before gifts are handed out at each of our 43 Club locations, they are wrapped by volunteers. More than 150 volunteers wrapped over 3,500 gifts at Bayshore Mall earlier this month at the Wrap Party. Holiday parties have begun, but there is still time to donate a toy through our online catalog.
Special thanks to WaterStone Bank for sponsoring the online catalog for our toy drive, and to Bayshore Town Center’s Olshan Outreach for sponsoring the Wrap Party and once again hosting us in their beautiful rotunda.
