It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The time is here to began wrapping gifts and placing them under lit trees lined with eye catching ornaments. Whether it be dressing up in those “ugly” holiday sweaters or binge watching Christmas classics with close relatives and friends, Christmas is a very special time of the year. Having family and friends to share the holiday experience with makes the 11 month wait worthwhile; however, many individuals will not have that experience. For children in foster homes and shelters, there will be no decorating a tree or building gingerbread houses with their families. Often, children in foster care will not see one, if any, gift afforded to them; however, Genuine Academy seeks to put smiles on the faces of 200 unsuspecting kids of the Destiny Academy of Achievers and Sword of the Spirit Ministries this holiday season by gifting each of them with a toy.
The annual ‘Genuine Academy Toy Drive’ serves to collect unwrapped toys to gift to children whom are without close family and are in need of a special reminder that they too matter. This year’s toy drive will be in partnership with Sword of the Spirit Ministries and will go on from December 1st to Saturday December 16th. On behalf of Donald Jones, owner of ‘On Time Barber Shop and Men’s Wear’, all toy donations will be collected at his shop. Once all the toys are collected, they will be divided evenly between both the Destiny Academy of Achievers and Sword of the Spirit Ministries. Alongside toys, the organization is also accepting coats, hats, gloves, and scarves for those in need. Remember, 200 children is the minimum, but more is always better! Toys can be dropped off to ‘On Time Barber Shop and Men’s Wear’ located at 2863 Anvil Block Road Ellenwood, GA 30294. Subscribe now to our newsletter for future updates and events.
