Make a child’s Christmas

December 6, 2011 by  

The 6th annual Santa’s Workshop will take place on December 15 at the Neighborhood Services and Code Compliance (NSCC) offices on Church St.; the festivities will begin at 7 pm. This yearly event collects toys to give to neighborhood children in the Church St./Doverdale areas.

The NSCC is the branch of the Salisbury city government which enforces city and maintenance codes. They are collecting new, unwrapped toys for children aged new born to 12 and monetary donations until December 9. The money will go to buying treats and extra gifts for those children attending Santa’s Workshop.

More information, such as contacts, can be found on the event’s flyer. Printing a copy and posting it in your Salisbury businesses or workplace will help to get the word out about this important event. Why not arrange for your employees to start a toy drive of their own and contribute to this worthy event? It is good for staff morale to work for a common good and it gives your business a favorable standing in the neighborhood.

We often forget that some children in our community do not get much for Christmas, sometimes not even a toy. With the help of local businesses and residents this can be avoided. Santa’s Workshop makes sure that all the children in the neighborhood who need a toy will get one.

And while you are at it, why not pick up another toy and donate it to your local Toys for Tots charity; the U.S. Marine Corps have been running this highly successful program since 1947.
