The Cape Girardeau Jaycees are kicking off their annual Toybox program, collecting donations of toys and funds that will be distributed to local children in need this holiday season. Donations will be accepted through December 18th.

The Toybox program provides gifts tailored to each child’s wish list, with volunteers playing the role of Santa Claus and personally delivering the gifts to the children’s homes.

“We deploy 26 vans with volunteers dressed as Santa to deliver the toys directly to each household,” said Tiffany Brosey, Toybox Program Director. “Being able to deliver toys and see their excitement brings real joy to what can be a difficult season for families in need.”

The program reaches over 1,200 local children every year, with each child receiving three to five gifts depending on age and requests. This year’s annual delivery is set for December 19th.

In addition to the Toybox program, the Cape Jaycees also organize Christmas for the Elderly, providing groceries, clothes, and other necessities to low-income seniors in the community. Nominations are made through the Division of Health and Senior Services.

“For many seniors who have little or no family, a visit bearing gifts can be the highlight of their holiday season,” said Tracey Haggerty.

Those interested in supporting the Cape Girardeau Jaycees’ holiday giving programs can find more information by emailing tiffany@theprintingco.biz.
