Give the Gift of Giving…Family-to-Family’s Annual Holiday Toy Drive
December 1 - December 15
Please join us in our efforts to make the Holidays bright for families struggling this Holiday Season. The Hastings-on-Hudson chapter of F-to-F is collecting new unwrapped toys & books for children 2-18, along with wrapping paper, tape and ribbon for families in struggling financially right here in Hastings-on-Hudson & Dobbs Ferry. Help us enable some of our own neighbors to be “the givers”. When toys, books and wrapping paper are collected our community outreach partners Bill and Jenny will help our sponsored families (and additional families in need, too), find just the right gifts to wrap up, and take home for their kids. Our mission is clear….instead of arriving from an anonymous donor, your gift enables mom and dad to be the “giver” and experience the joy of giving! Please drop your gifts and wrapping supplies off: 6 Circle Drive, Hastings. Leave inside/outside basement door down the driveway, please. When : Anytime…just drop off your gifts!!!

The Caring Committee will be sponsoring the 4th Annual Holiday Gift Boutique on Wednesday, December 15th between 10:00-4:00p.m. We can accommodate 20 vendors. We are requesting a donation fee of $50 per space or 20% from the proceeds of your merchandise sale(s). This must be decided upon prior to December 15th. As it is a charity event, your donation is tax deductible. Sales tax reporting is the responsibility of the vendor. If you are in a different location other than Irvington and would like to have a table-sitter, members of the Caring Committee have volunteered to table-sit. We have a limited number of volunteers; this service will be a first come, first serve basis. Of course, it is always better to be present selling your own goods. Set-up is between 9:00-10:00 Wednesday morning unless you have made other arrangements with Joanne Lawson. We hope that you will be as festive as possible in displaying your goods. The Caring Committee will sponsor a Salad & Soup Kitchen and beverages for purchase while you enjoy your holiday shopping experience. If you are interested in participating in the Holiday Gift Boutique, kindly respond to this email as to what you will be selling and remember we have only a limited amount of spaces. For further information or if you have questions, please contact Joanne Lawson at JLawson@EileenFisher.com or Johanne Read (JRead@EileenFisher.com). Outside arts and craft vendors will also be participating. The event will be open to employees and residents of Irvington and will be advertised on WHUD. We hope you will join us! Happy Holidays!
