Winter Wonderland Toys and Gift Cards Needed

Here’s a quick and easy way to help brighten a child’s face on Christmas Day.  Sign up to Host a Toy Drive, Adopt a child or just Donate a new toy, present or gift card to Steven’s Hope.  We have the biggest request list ever and we need help filling all the requests.  We are short on toys for the younger kids and are desperately in need of gift cards for teenagers.  Just a $25 gift card to WalMart, Target or BestBuy goes a long way.

This year, deliveries are planned to Loma Linda University Medical Center, Pomona Valley Medical Center, Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, Kaiser Permanente Fontana, San Antonio Communtiy Hospital and City of Hope. For more info call the office about helping Winter Wonderland.
