It’s time to brighten the holidays for local children in need! You can donate new unwrapped toys, knit gloves, scarves and socks to the Santa House by bringing these items to any Apex PRD facility from now through December 8.
The 12th annual Santa House is organized by the Arvada-Wheat Ridge Service Ambassadors for Youth (AWRSAY), an affiliation of Arvada and Wheat Ridge service clubs and Red Rocks Community College. This year, the Santa House is in the Friendly Square Shopping Center at 64th & Simms. The shop’s address is 11651 W. 64th Ave., Unit B2 (on the west end of the shopping center, next to Mile High Billiards).
Here’s how it works: Parents in need whose children attend Allendale, Arvada K-8, Arvada Head Start, Campbell, Foster, Fremont, Fitzmorris, Kullerstrand, Lawrence, Little, Parr, Peck, Pennington, Secrest, Swanson, Thomson and Vanderhoof, are referred to the Santa House by the schools. These parents might otherwise be unable to afford gifts, and at the Santa House they can select donated gifts for their elementary and middle school children, and siblings ages infant through 12.
To donate, bring items to Apex PRD facilities. If a financial donation works better for you, these are welcome any time, especially early in the campaign. Please make checks payable to AWRSAY and enter Santa House on the memo line. You can drop checks off at Apex facilities or mail them to Duane Youse, 6347 DeFrame Way, Arvada CO 80004.
Gifts should be new and unwrapped, for infants through age 12. Ideas: Dolls, learning toys and games, books, crayons, coloring books, trucks, cars, sports balls, skateboards, tricycles, bicycles, board games, craft kits, remote control toys, pre-teen jewelry, hand held computer games, girls’ purses, Superheroes toys, knit gloves, scarves, underwear and socks. Stocking stuffers too!
Thanks and happy shopping! For more information, call Guest Services, 303-424-2739.
