We are pleased to be the toy captains for the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Jamaica Plain who once again is partnering with Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture to collect toys as part of The Home for Little Wanderers’ Big Wishes Gift Drive. Big Wishes is one of the Boston area’s oldest and largest toy drives, supporting children and families who are living in at-risk circumstances and are served by The Home’s programs across Eastern Massachusetts.
We encourage friends,clients, & neighbors throughout the community to drop off new, unwrapped toys at the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office located at 713 Centre St. and any Bernie & Phyl’s store in Massachusetts. The Coldwell Banker offices are accepting donations now through 12:00 noon Monday, December 10, 2012.
The Home needs gifts for children ranging in age from birth to 22-years, with an urgent need for gifts for the 14- to 18-year-old teenagers in its care. To help meet the challenge of providing
suitable holiday gifts for the teens that The Home serves, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and Bernie & Phyl’s are providing up to $5,000 in matching funds for all gift cards that are donated during the gift drive. Some suggested places for purchasing gift cards are music stores and clothing outlets such as Target, Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, or Walmart, and online retailers for personal care items,electronics and sporting goods.
To learn more about ways to help The Home this holiday season, including how you can pledge a gift from a child’s personal wish list or shop from a general list and have the gift delivered free of charge directly to The Home’s Toy Room, visit www.thehome.org/bigwishes.
Thank you & “Big Wishes” for you and your family during the holiday season!
