We are often asked what can individuals do to help TLC@home?
There is a need for donations to make Christmas that much better for the participating children.
Looking to donate, we are always looking for items that entertain the children. Toys, crafts, games to play, or books to read, are a few suggestions. Please make sure the items are age appropriate. Some ideas are mini sports cars, small games, puzzles. crafts, dolls, and squishmellows along with items for older children such as nail polish, personal care items and jewelry.
If you want to shop for a specific child, we can give you the name and age of a child. We recommend spending about $35-40 per box. All boxes are checked to make sure they are appropriate and balanced. For the name of a child please contact us
Please see the lists below as a guide for what TO donate and what NOT to donate.
Also please note all items donated must fit in an oversized shoe box. Each gift box is personalized with the child’s name.
