Bring joy to a child during the holidays.

Project Joy! provides donors with the opportunity to “adopt-a-family” for the holidays and purchase toys from children’s wish lists. Last year, almost 900 families had gift-filled holidays thanks to many individuals, groups, and corporations that participated in Project Joy!

Presently People to People provides monthly food packages to more than 1,500 families each month.  This year more than ever there will be need for our Joy! Store where families who were not eligible to submit a letter can receive two new gifts per child.

Therefore, the Joy! Store needs new toys for boys and girls ages 0-18.  Please purchase (or organize a toy drive to collect) soft toys, dolls, sports games, scrapbooks, art and craft kits, action figures, toy trucks, building games, musical and educational toys, and children’s books.  In addition, $25 gift cards from Target, Wal-Mart, Old Navy, Barnes & Noble and Kohl’s are specially helpful as gifts for older children. Joy! Store donations can be delivered to People to People between 11/19 and 12/7.

For more information, please e-mail: Jim Burton at, or call 845-623-4900, ext. 211.
