2023 CHRISTMAS TOY DRIVE
KWSM U-Turn Chrismas toys -2023
Among children, Christmas is commonly associated with toys. A significant number of the families we assist are barely able to cover their expenses and reside in low-income housing here in Waco. In the previous year, we provided assistance to approximately 380 children. We express our gratitude for your generous contribution of toys each year, which enables us to bring joy to children who would otherwise go without during Christmas. This year, K W Stephens Ministries will exclusively provide toys to families in need that have already been identified through our program throughout the year. We are also working with the housing program to help identify kids with the greatest need because even though we would like to provide for every child, we are limited with resources this year and can only provide for a certain number. Consequently, the toy registration will not be open to the public.
In 2019 we provided 210 families with toys and goods for their families.
In 2020 we provided 290 kids with toys
In 2021 we anticipate providing toys for 400 kids
In 2022 we helped provide 380 kids' toys
The poverty rate in Waco is about 29.4 %. What that means is that there are about 29.4 % of people live in poverty.
These families struggle with anything from low income to domestic abuse, drug use, and mental illness.
We are currently in need of donations of heaters, fans, blankets
