ABOUT THE TOY DRIVE:
This toy drive provides new, unwrapped toys to foster children at MSPCC and low-income children receiving CSO’s individual and family support services.
HOW TOYS ARE DELIVERED:
After the show, all toys will be inventoried and packed up. Toys will be dispersed to case workers with direct contact with foster kids and low-income families needing help during the holidays.
WHO ARE WE WORKING WITH?
We are working with Western Mass MSPCC Kid’s Net Director, Amneris “Netti” Figuero, and
Clinical & Support Options Volunteer Coordinator, Allison Weissman,
They will distribute toys to their case workers who will then deliver to the kids and other organizations such as AOKids.
While this is a comedy show to collect toys for kids, this is NOT a show FOR kids. 18+. Rated R for Adult Language & Content.
