ECA Sponsoring “Right Start Parent for Life” organization with a neighborhood toy drive.
The ECA will be sponsoring Right Start Parent for Life during our toy donation drive. Right Start is a support group for young mothers ages 17 to 24 who have been in or aged out of the foster care system. Mothers and their young children who participate in the voluntary program receive weekly home visits, attend activities, share support, and learn how to have fun and nurture themselves and their children while building a strong parenting foundation.
Right Start will service approximately 45 children during the holidays. The ECA will be hosting a special gift drop off on Sunday, December 8th from 1 to 5 at children’s home society offices on 7th Street (gifts should be unwrapped). Please stop by and enjoy coffee and donuts while supporting this wonderful cause. Gift suggestions include:
• Leaf Frog Toys
• Dolls-African American
• Ride or Push Toys
• Coloring books
• Sticker Books
• Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Toys
• Cars and Trucks
• Footballs and Soccer Balls
• Boys and Girls Coats sizes 6 months to 4T
