Holiday Season 2020

More than 2.7 million children in the US have an incarcerated parent, and, as a result lack access to basic needs. 

Help support children with an incarcerated loved one this holiday season.

Donate a new, unwrapped toy by visiting our Amazon Wishlist here.

Or contact us at 631-273-3300 to sign up to help distribute toys! COVID-19 regulations in effect and may inhibit our ability to give out inside the jail, but we will make alternate giving plans.
