December 19, 2014—Long Beach, CA—St. Nick’s Christmas Design and Décor is participating in a holiday gift drive and Christmas tree donation to benefit local non-profit organization Children Today this holiday season. St. Nick’s donated fresh-cut Douglas fir Christmas trees along with lights and ornaments to three Long Beach families, as well as toys, clothing and basic necessities for 100+ children in the local community.

“The holiday season gives us all a chance to show just how much we care about our neighbors and the children in our communities,” said Nic Adams, founder of St. Nick’s Design and Décor. “There is always good that can be done and this is a stepping stone into giving back to the community this season.”

To maximize the success of this endeavor, St. Nick’s would like to extend an open invitation to anyone interested in participating in this worthy cause. St. Nick’s will be providing toy pick-up services for individuals interested in donating. The company is collecting new, unwrapped toys for children between the ages of six weeks and 6. These gifts will be distributed to the children and their families at Children Today’s North Long Beach facility from Dec. 22nd through the 24th.

To schedule a donation pick-up before December 22nd, please contact St. Nick’s at Nick@St-Nicks.com or (562) 438-0017. For more information on opportunities to participate and to view wish list items, please visit http://www.childrentoday.org/wish-list.html.

About Children Today 

Children Today was founded in 1997 by two working mothers, Theresa Bixby and Jennifer Fitzgerald, in Long Beach, California, after one of them saw a toddler wandering alone down a busy street, wearing only a diaper, his parents nowhere to be seen. It was this haunting image of homelessness—as well as its often overlooked impact on children—that inspired the creation of Children Today.
