Community Involvement

15th Annual Holiday Donation Drive 
November 21st-December 14th, 2022

November 21st-December 14th: Happy holidays from our families to yours! This holiday season, please consider supporting us in our annual holiday giving efforts. For the past 15 years we've donated to different local schools and organizations to help put a smile on the faces of our local kids in need. Whether it's donations of wish list gift items or most needed personal items, we know the importance of giving back to our local community, especially during the holidays.

This year, our stores will be supporting The House of the Good Shepherd in Utica, NY and Haven of Hope Farm and Residence in Fonda, NY by donating most needed items and wish list items to these integral programs in our community that supports children in foster care, and homeless women and children, respectively. 

Simply take a tag from the giving trees in our showrooms, purchase the gift(s), tape the tag to the gifts and return to our trees by December 14th!

Your donation of toys, books, activities, or personal items, brings joy and hope to the babies, children, and women in our area during the holidays. Donations are accepted during business hours. We hope you can experience the joy in paying it forward and help these kids in need have a great holiday! From our families to yours, thank you, and happy holidays!
