Pickering Christmas Market is a proud supporter of Dreams & Wishes.
The Pickering Christmas Market is proud to be supporting local charity, Dreams & Wishes Children’s Charity, with a toy and donation drive. Bring the spirit of giving with you to this event by donating an unwrapped toy at their booth. Dreams & Wishes helps children and families deemed underprivileged and in need in our community. Their current programs include Santa’s Magical Holiday Breakfast where participants are treated to a nutritional breakfast, entertainment, a visit with Santa and a hand selected gift/toy. Their Santa’s Dream Program is provided to children residing in homeless/family/abuse shelters where the participants are asked to create a letter to Santa including a wish-list. Dreams & Wishes answers the letters and fills their toy requests. All gifts are wrapped and delivered to the shelters before Christmas Eve for shelter staff to place under the tree for Christmas morning.
Much needed items include:
- Stuffed animals
- Books – all ages
- Learning games
- New, non violent toys (babies and teens – always the highest need)
- Teen items – gift cards, toiletries, clothes
- Clothes – new – all ages
- Children’s pillowcases – new
