Redemption Church Toy Drive

When: Dec 15, 2018 10:00-10:00 am

Where: RHI 767 Hicks Street

This event will take place on Saturday December 15th at the Red Hook Initiative. Attached is a flyer that appeals to those who can contribute New Toys for this event. We will also be establishing Drop-off sites within the community. Currently you can bring toys to RHI as well as CopperPot (formerly Hope & Anchor). My hopes is that the Red Hook community would rally around this event and bring hope to families who may take this time of the year as one of despair and brokenness. If you have any questions regarding this event, donations, or anything else feel free to contact me directly of Tony Russell at
