The Russell Home for Atypical Children

Christmas Gift Suggestion List 2005


Note to CFCA Members: This year's wish list simply includes the toys and other items most desired by the children at the Russell Home. Of course, these are only suggestions. The children will love anything! Please wrap your gift(s) in colorful gift wrap paper and place a small tag on the package identifying the contents of your gift and whether it's best suited for a BOY or a GIRL. That will make it easier for the Russell Home staff to make sure the gifts are properly distributed. General household supplies and food items are always needed as well (see wish list at the end).


This year CFCA will deliver gifts and our annual donation during a driveout to the Russell Home on Sunday, Dec 4th, meeting at Courtesy Chevrolet (Hwy 436 near OIA) at 10 a.m. with a departure time of 10:30 a.m. to the Russell Home. After our visit, we will caravan over to the Road House restaurant on Orange Ave for lunch. Your heart WILL be touched by this event! If you cannot attend, bring your gifts to a club meeting and we'll make sure they get delivered. And remember... it's for the children! Thanks, and Happy Holidays in advance!


Thanks to CFCA member Gary Dzkowski for obtaining this list for us!


 

These are merely suggestions, you are welcome to use your own judgment for gifts. The children watch TV like all children do and want everything they see, so you canít miss pleasing them. If you have any questions, please call us at 407-855-8063, and thank you again for being so thoughtful.
