Giving Season is finally upon us and Bundles of Joy is busier than ever trying to meet the demand of our neighbors in need. I joke that Giving Season for charitable organizations is the equivalent of Tax Season for an accountant. Needless to say, we are very excited about the many great events and opportunities we have for those interested in giving back and getting involved with Bundles of Joy. Right now, we can use ALL the help we can get.
If you’re able to attend an event - Email Adrienne@BundlesOfJoyNY.org to save your spot!
Saturday, December 1 - Donation Drop & Sorting Event
Westy’s Lobby 9AM-12PM
Join us at Westy’s in Tuckahoe - we’ll collect winter donations and sort in preparation for our POP Up Event. We’re looking for warm clothing, outerwear, and you can always drop off new hygiene and toiletries as well! We need many hands to help us sort so this is a great opportunity to give an hour of your time that will make a huge impact.
Friday, December 7 - Holiday Gift Wrapping
The Villa - Bronxville 7 PM
Got gift wrapping skills? Help us wrap holiday gifts for children living in homeless shelters. We’ve got the toys - we just need YOU! This will be a fun event and we encourage any and all young wrappers accompanied by a grownup.
Saturday, December 15 - Pop Up Holiday Event at local Shelter
A personal favorite - this is what it’s ALL about. We’re brining our inventory to families living in a local shelter and giving them a shopping experience! We’ll bring loads of gifts for all the kids to enjoy while their parents “shop.” We’re looking for volunteers to help parents find sizes, search through items and hold adorable babies. You’ll leave feeling like you’re on top of the world.
Thursday, December 20 - Holiday Gift Giving @ White Plains Library
We’ll be delivering lots of JOY to babies and toddlers we’ve been working with throughout the year. There is no greater feeling than Holiday Cheer and seeing these kids smile. We need a couple volunteers to help us deliver and pass out toys.
Other Ways to Support Bundles of Joy
Shop Sammy + Nat pajamas - For every pair sold, they’re giving a onesie to a baby in need! Giving never looked (and felt) so good! You can get yours online at www.sammyandnat.com or visit them at The Westchester (across from Santa) or their Rye location 88 Purchase Street.
Purchase directly from our Amazon Wishlist - You’ll find the in-demand items our families are requesting this season! We aren’t just giving away toys, we’re giving loads of Bundles filled with essentials (like soap, socks, mittens, hats and more) so that families have the tools they need to thrive.
Donate - Drop off your items anytime at the Bronxville Public Library - Second Floor or if you don’t have items to donate, Buy A Bundle and we’ll fill it for you! It will have everything that child needs to get them through the season as temps drop.
Spread the Word - this is the easiest way to help us! Let people know what we’re up to so that we can reach even more kids in need. BoJ is all about connecting those who have with those who need so please pass on the good word.
