For over 20 years, the Junior League has put on a “toy sale” in our community for families who might not otherwise have holiday gifts for their children over the holidays. Throughout the year, we collect new or gently-used toys, bikes, play houses, games, puzzles, dolls, and books. After the fall Friends of the Library (FOL) book sale, we fill the FOL warehouse from front to back with all of these items. On the first Saturday of December, families bring an invitation provided by local community agencies and go through the warehouse with a personal shopper.
The 2017 Miracle on Main Street was a success! A few notable facts:
- Served more than 150 families
- Including more than 450 children
- Worked with 22 community partners
- Each family who attended also received a pantry bag as part of our Action Against Hunger initiative
How can you help?
Sponsor a Bike and More
The holiday shop features donated toys for children of all ages, including big ticket items such as bicycles. Bikes are an incredibly popular gift at our event! Please consider helping us by sponsoring a bike for $60 (this purchase is considered a donation).
We are bringing back our corporate sponsorship this year as well. At a variety of levels, a local company can become a corporate sponsor. This sponsorship provides the funds to purchase toys, bikes, and other necessary goods and services for our event. Corporate sponsors will receive acknowledgment in all publicity, including but not limited to print advertising, social media posts, and event signage.
You can also help by donating new or gently-used toys or bikes for the Miracle on Main Street event. Bring them by the Junior League office during our hours (Tuesday – Wednesday, 10 am – 3 pm). If you have further questions, please contact the Junior League office for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
