Holiday Toy Drive

Please help the People’s Emergency Center (PEC) create warm and happy memories for local families, by contributing to PPMC’s annual Holiday Toy Drive. With your help, we can ensure that local families experience the joy and hope of the holiday. There are two ways you can contribute:

Sponsor a child: Help fulfill holiday wishes by purchasing items for a specific child. Sponsors will be given a child’s name, age, clothing/shoe sizes and toys they would like to receive. To select a child from the list, or if you have questions about sponsoring a child, please contact Kim Hibbs at 215-662-9104 or

Donate a gift: Bring a new and unwrapped toy or gift for donation to the families at the PEC shelter. Donated gifts can be dropped off in the Administration suite, or you can call Kim Hibbs to arrange for your gift to be picked up. Click here for a list of suggested ideas for holiday gifts.

PEC shelters Moms and their children who are in emergent situations and/or homeless. Most arrive at the shelter in the middle of the night, with only the clothing on their back. Please consider sponsoring a child or making a donation this holiday season so children of terrible circumstances can have a wonderful holiday.

The Toy Drive runs through Monday, December 17th. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
