Kingdom Builders Fellowship Center and Outreach Ministries has launched Kingdom Kidz as a way to provide Racine’s youth with Christmas gifts and toys. This is the first year that this event will take place. With nearly a month left until Christmas, the organization is seeking donations from those who are able to give this holiday season.
With a goal of serving 1,000 Racine children, Ashley Guenther from Kingdom Builders Fellowship Center and Outreach Ministries reports that they have nearly 1,300 children signed up to receive presents.
Call for Toy Donations
Due to COVID-19, the annual Tex Reynolds’ Toys for Tots event will not be taking place this year. Ron Tatum who is the director of Failure Is Not An Option, a community outreach program through Kingdom Builders Outreach groups, is making sure that this years Christmas is one worth remembering.
A Christmas miracle, however, can’t take place without the help of the community. The Kingdom Kidz Toy Drive is seeking sealed, plastic, packaged toys. They are asking donors to refrain from donating cloth or fabric items because they cannot be sanitized.
The toy drive benefits ages 3 to 12 years old. Here’s what is needed:
- Boys ages 3 to 4 years old- 36 toys
- Girls ages 3 to 4 years old-13 toys
- Boys ages 5 to 7 years old- 38 toys
- Boys ages 8 to 10 years old- 70 toys
- Girls ages 8 to 10 years old- 61 toys
- Boys ages 11 to 12 years old- 10 toys
- Girls ages 11 to 12 years old- 28 toys
