Donated towards $600.00 Goal
December 11, 2017
For $12, you can give a family hours of togetherness and fun. Person-to-Person (P2P) is raising $600 to purchase 50 preschool board games for the annual Holiday Toy Store!
The Holiday Toy Store is a pop-up shop at P2P Darien where families select a toy, a book and a family board game for the holidays.
Board games are particularly important because they also help young children learn – increasing attention, listening and concentration skills, enhancing vocabulary, encouraging higher level thinking and teaching good sportsmanship.
They bring families together to interact and communicate in a relaxing atmosphere. As one P2P client noted, “I’ve received Christmas gifts for my children from Toy Store. The best gifts are the board games because they bring me and my girls together for a weekly game night.”
Toy Store is one of the most fulfilling, enjoyable and engaging programs at P2P. For low-income clients who struggle throughout the year to provide basic necessities such as food and clothing, the holidays can be particularly stressful. Given the challenges and anxiety in the daily lives of P2P clients, Toy Store creates holiday cheer – because nothing is more heart-warming and encouraging than the smile of a child.

The act of giving brings joy to everyone and P2P is grateful for the enormous generosity of the community. With your help, the holidays (and beyond) will be merry and bright for 50 families.
