Toys make a brighter day during a darker time


Starting today and ending Friday, December 19, we're running a toy drive to benefit the Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento.


Help collect toys for children in need. The Children's Receiving Home of Sacramento offers many services and programs, including providing emergency shelter for children "affected by abuse, neglect, and trauma." During this holiday time, your gifts can brighten their day.

So, let's join together this holiday season to help these children make the best of a difficult time. Then, bring them in and drop them off at Empire's and we'll deliver them on Saturday, December 20.

Gift tips for tweens

1. Please bring only *unwrapped* toys.
2. Shop for a boy or a girl or both.
3. Select items appropriate for ages 11-15.
4. Download this list of specific ideas, need and children's wish lists to help you select the perfect gift.
5. Drop off your toys at Empire's and we'll deliver them on 12/20/14.

We'll keep a list at the store, so we can track how we're doing in finishing this list overall. Thank you, all, for supporting children in need during this time of the year. Hopefully in 2015, we'll be able to raise funds during a non-holiday time, since difficult times happen all year.
