Toy Drive

Christian is committed to making a positive impact in her community, and one way she does this is through her annual Toy Drive at Emery Heights Community. This Toy Drive has been a great success, serving over 150 families and bringing joy to children and their families during the holiday season.

Christian is grateful for the support of her volunteers, donors, and partners who made this Toy Drive possible. Their contributions, big or small, have made a significant impact on the lives of those in need. With the generosity of the community, Christian hopes to continue her mission of bringing joy and hope to those in need.

As Christian looks towards the future, she hopes to serve even more families. She believes that together, we can make a difference in our community, and is grateful for the support of those who share her passion for helping others.

Let’s continue to rise together and bring joy and hope to those in need.
