Toy Drives are an amazing way to make the holiday season a little bit brighter for children in need around the Denver area.
A toy not only gives a kid a gift—it tells them that they are special.
If you’re looking for a charitable way to give back to your Park Hill Community as we wrap up 2020, Toy Drives are an extremely worthy cause.
In this article, we have compiled a list of five Toy Drives in the Park Hill neighborhood that are looking for donations from folks like you.
