Norwalk, CT, December 03, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Shopping for gifts at this time of year is an art. Finding the perfect gifts for your family and friends can be time consuming and exhausting. "There are times when I am looking for gifts and I see a wonderful gift or toy that I wish I had someone to give it to. And then I remember that there are plenty of children to give it to that I don't even know!" says Catherine Smith, Communications Coordinator at TFI Envision, Inc. She is referring to all the children that are helped with the Inspirica’s Holiday Gift Collection. Since 2009, TFI Envision has been a drop-off location for this critical program, and this year is no exception.
"Everyone that has already dropped off toys and gifts tell us that our location makes it very convenient, and the big banner on our building reminds them of the program while they are out shopping. The support by the community is inspiring," said Smith.
Inspirica’s Holiday Gift Collection is one of the largest regional programs to gather, organize, and deliver approximately 5,500 personalized, wrapped gifts to 2,750 children in Fairfield County affected by homelessness, HIV/AIDS, and/or poverty. They collect on behalf of 34 local agencies in Stamford, Bridgeport, Danbury, Norwalk, and Stratford. Their goal is to ensure these struggling families do not have to debate whether to spend their precious resources on necessities or gifts, and to ensure that no child goes without gifts during the holiday.
"I am continually amazed at the generosity of people even during these difficult financial times. The opportunity to help others in their time of need is a gratifying experience. We have families that come in with their children to drop off toys. It's never too early to teach a child to give," said Elizabeth P. Ball, President / Creative Director of TFI Envision, Inc.
The TFI Envision office, conveniently located at 111 Westport Avenue, directly across from Stew Leonards in Norwalk, CT, will be open Monday - Friday, 8:30am - 5:30pm to accept donations of unwrapped toys from now until Dec 12th.
