The “Santa List” for the Kids includes:

  • Books

  • Games              

  • Infant Toys    

  • Hot Wheels

  • Dolls  

  • Craft Sets                       


Make a difference by helping Brighten Up their holidays. The collection will begin on November 1stand run through December 10th. 

The Last day to drop off gifts will be December 10th. If you are interested or want more information please email us at Brightenupforthekids@ or click on our donation page!
