BBBS 2017 Annual Giving Tree Program- Toy Program

Thank you for participating in our 2017 Annual Giving Tree Program. We look forward to this partnership each year. It is because of the spirit and generosity of Briarcrest High School, that our children's Christmas holiday is a little brighter. To make your task a little easier, we have enlisted Santa’s helper to give us a hand. Below is a list of age and gender appropriate toy suggestions.  For your convenience, we are also listing a couple of sites that may be of assistance. 
Remember, the deadline to return gifts is the first Friday of December. We ask that you decorate your gifts using gift bags so that we can see the gifts before passing them on to the parent/child. Lastly, have fun and don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
