Hillside Family of Agencies recently kicked-off its annual Special Santa campaign, a holiday gift-giving program that benefits more than 3,000 youth and families served by Hillside Family of Agencies in the Rochester area.
Many local families served by Hillside do not have the resources to purchase holiday gifts for their children. The goal of this annual program is to provide three modest gifts to each child in every family served by the nonprofit.
Residents are asked to consider picking up one ore more new, unwrapped gifts while shopping this holiday season.
Some of the most needed items requested by children and their siblings are soccer balls, footballs and basketballs; jewelry; sports watches for boys and girls; duffle bags, drawstring bags, sports bags and purses; cologne, body sprays and body kits; lotions, makeup and hair supplies for teenage girls; hoodies and logo sweatshirts for all ages; MP3 players under $25; learning and building toys for young children; and books for all ages.
Gifts can be dropped off at the Hillside Special Santa Headquarters at Crestwood Children’s Center, 2075 Scottsville Road, Rochester, or at any of the 49 community partner locations around the Rochester area. To find a community partner location, visit bit.ly/2glfM8s.
