TCAA and IKEA Seek Toy Donations for Families in Need WHAT: Tempe Community Action Agency (TCAA) announces its 8th annual Holiday Toy Shoppe in partnership with IKEA. With donations from the community, underprivileged families can choose from a wide selection of toys and gifts for their children and teens this holiday season. Last year the TCAA toy shoppe provided for more than 600 children, and anticipates helping 800 this year. TCAA is asking the community to help provide items for the shoppe or to volunteer their time as gift wrappers or shopping guides. Donations can be in the form of new, unwrapped toy for kids and Wal-Mart gift cards for “hard to buy for” teens. Wrapping paper and gift wrapping supplies are also needed. Parties or individuals interested in holding a toy drive or volunteering at the Holiday Toy Shoppe can contact Beth Fiorenza at firstname.lastname@example.org or 480-350-5883. *In order to qualify for the TCAA Holiday Toy Shoppe, parents must take a free budgeting course provided by TCAA professional volunteers.
