2013 Shop for an Angel and Shop for a Teen Angel

November 3, 2013


Shop for an Angel is a tradition at Family Resource Center that began when our staff realized there was a void in many children’s lives during the holiday season.

Friends come together to provide toys and gifts for the children FRC serves, brightening their holidays and bringing back simple joys. In 2013, Shop for an Angel will supply gifts for over 700 children! To find out how you can help,

  • shutterstock_114771913Sponsor a toy drive and ask your friends, family and coworkers to contribute.
  • Keep FRC’s kids in mind as you shop for your loved ones.
  • Below is a wish list of the items needed.
  • No time to shop? Cash contributions are welcome. Your cash donation will be used to purchase new toys. Make checks payable to Family Resource Center.

To arrange delivery of new, unwrapped toys, call 314.534.9350.

Shop for a Teen Angel provides new outfits for teens in FRC’s Foster Care Program. Consider adopting one of our teens for the holidays and giving them an outfit they can be proud to wear. For more information on either program, contact Tina Nelson at 314.534.9350 or tnelson@frcmo.org.
