Summer at Center of Hope: Christmas in July
We will be collecting new and gently used toys for our Christmas store during the month of July. If you have toys or games that are no longer being played with and would like to give them a new home please think about donating them to Central Avenue. They need to be unwrapped so that parents and grandparents can choose a toy for their children. Please bring them to the center and let Marsha know they are for the Christmas Store.
School Supply Drive in August
We are having a school supply drive to collect supplies for the clients of Central Avenue Center of Hope. Marsha passes out the school supplies throughout the year as clients and children come in and need school supplies. The supplies will be going on sale soon at the stores. When you see pens, pencils, crayons, notebooks, folders, backpacks, glue, scissors, facial tissue, erasers, rulers, loose-leaf notebook paper, on sale pick up a few and donate them to Central Avenue Center of Hope.
