Getting Festive for Toys of Joy
It’s that time of year again, can you believe it?! The holidays are here, the snow is falling, and CEAP is preparing for its Toys of Joy program where we provide toys and stocking stuffers to kids.
My duty is to make the event festive! That means bringing in wonderful piano players and singers, Santa and Mrs. Claus, playing fun holiday music, and providing free donuts, coffee, and juice. We host the toy distribution in our Brooklyn Center office and everywhere you look it looks and feels festive in our space. We have beautiful sparkling trees for decoration, and even staff and volunteers wear holiday sweaters and festive clothing!
This time of year is all about spreading kindness and joy to those around you. I love that we are able to host this program at our office and decorate our space. Our goal is to make it a festive, fun, and lively environment so that those who need our services feel a little extra cheer this holiday season.
