FLOC (For Love Of Children) and The Shopping Bag are teaming up to make Christmas one to remember for underprivileged children throughout the Miami Valley . The Shopping Bag will be a drop off location for new toys to benefit FLOC’s annual Christmas for Kids program.
“ The FLOC toy shelves are very barren this year, but the need has increased ”. Said Beth Mann , President of the Board of Directors .
“The partners hip with The Shopping Bag and the good people of the Miami Valley will guarantee a very Merry Christmas for the hundreds of families we serve.” She added.
From Friday December 15, through Friday December 22 , drop off a new, unwrapped toy to The Shopping Ba g and receive a gift card to The Shopping Bag per family donation . In addition, The Shopping Bag will also match all toy donations.
Toys will be handed over to FLOC on December 22 in time for Christmas.
“When made aware FLOC was in need of toys this close to the holidays , we jumped at the chance to help because the holidays are more about giving than receiving . Hearing children would possibly not have a gift under the tree, our team said this couldn’t be and we had to step into action. ’ Said Lauren Murphy – Zahora , President of The Shopping Bag.
“ The Shopping Bag appreciates the opportunity to do our part in making Christmas extra special this holiday season for children throughout the Miami Valley .” Lauren added.
Drop new unwrapped toys at The Shopping Bag, located at 3109 Far Hills Ave. in Kettering during these hours: Tues – Friday 1-7pm, Saturday Noon – 6pm
