Christmas for Fenton
The Fenton Precinct
of the St. Louis County Police Department will be collecting gifts for needy families that are living in the Fenton area. Many people look forward to this event and even go so far to set up collection boxes within their work place or church. The gifts will be delivered the week of December 16th
I will be going to the surrounding hotels/motels seeking needy families this month. Also I would love suggestions of needy families with children that live elsewhere within the City of Fenton. These families don’t have to be dirt poor, but maybe just going through a tough time. (We could possibly leave a gift for a family such as this anonymously at their front door.) Contact me with the families’ details and we can discuss the details of the gifts.
You can bring your wrapped and labeled donations to the Fenton Precinct. If you want to start collecting for the families now are not you can pretty much assume what a family needs; gift cards (Walmart, Target, restaurants, etc.), simple toys, books, toddler toys, 8 year old toys, teen toys, make-up, small things for parents. Cash donations are fine. I will take the cash and supplement any gifts that are not donated for a specified child, or buy gift cards. Also, remember to double check whether your gift will need batteries to operate.
Please be sure that wrapped gifts are clearly marked with the appropriate age, gender and/or family. Unwrapped gifts will be wrapped by volunteers prior to delivery.
Non-perishable food donations are also welcomed.
