There are many toy drives during the holiday season but Sherwood 4 Kids Sake has a unique mission. The primary mission of the S4KS Holiday Gift Drive is to distribute basic need items to children from low-income families referred to us by Sherwood School staff. Our goal is to help the children succeed in school by providing appropriate clothes, jackets and shoes they can wear in January to help them feel more comfortable and confident in the classroom. Of course each child will also receive fun toys & games they “want”! 100% of contributions are distributed to Sherwood children each year.
Sherwood 4 Kids Sake will coordinate the solicitation and distribution of donations and specific services to children and teens in low-income families in Sherwood, Oregon. This will include continuing the tradition of providing Holiday gifts for families in our community. This registered not-for-profit, all volunteer organization, may identify other needs, such as school supplies and emergency clothing, to provide for local youth.
For many years volunteers in Sherwood, Oregon provided Christmas gifts and other important services to local children through “Helping Hands Food Bank” at Sherwood United Methodist Church. In 2012 a new not-for-profit organization known as “Sherwood 4 Kids Sake” was created to meet the needs of the growing low-income population in our community. S4KS focuses on providing basic clothing needs and the Annual Holiday Gift Drive for children, allowing Help Hands to focus their resources on providing emergency food for needy families.
