01 Aug Soccer Balls Bring Christmas Joy to Kids in Need
Organization: Tipp City Needy Basket
Lives Impacted: 20+
Donation: Park Social Soccer
Tipp City Needy Basket of Southern Miami County, is a food pantry for the needy in Tipp City, Bethel and Monroe Townships. We offer two programs throughout the year to families needing emergency assistance due to layoffs, illness, disability or insufficient family income. The Emergency Food Program is a year-around effort to provide food and other needed items to lower income families, and the Christmas Basket program provides a complete family Christmas dinner and new toys!
We have been receiving toys, hats and mittens from Good360 for quite a few years now. With the toy donations being such good quality and the ability to order by the case, it helps us keep our costs down and stretch our dollars further. I recently ordered two cases of Park Soccer Balls and they were just what the kids needed this year. The soccer balls are a great gift to put in the older children’s baskets because it was one hot item they would love.
We are so thankful for these donations because the families we serve are delighted to receive the toys for their children during the holidays. One family that comes to our organization has 9 children and little income. For them, Christmas is often more of a struggle than a time of joy. Our organization helps their family by providing them with toys, giving them the opportunity to have a happy holiday! The many THANK YOUs we receive make our day, so thank you Good360 for helping us serve these families every year.
