Northwest Assistance Ministries’ (NAM’s) annual toy drive is off to a strong start after receiving a generous and unexpected donation of nearly 1,000 new toys for children of all ages from Lesley and Dennis Green of Greens Remote Toys. This holiday season NAM aims to collect more than 15,000 toys to bless more than 1,000 families with gifts.
NAM’s goal is to supply local families in need with gifts for their children and staples necessary for preparing holiday meals through its Holiday Food and Toy Drive. Ingredients for a full holiday meal, complete with a turkey, was provided at Thanksgiving and a second full meal will be provided in December.
NAM is still in need of donations and volunteers to assist with the upcoming December distribution. Donations of new, unwrapped toys in the range of approximately $25 per gift for ages 0-12 are especially needed. Toys may be dropped off at The Harrell Family Opportunity Center located behind NAM’s main building at 15555 Kuykendahl Road, Houston, Texas 77090, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. until Monday, December 5, 2022.
