Future Giants 2012 Holiday Toy Drive

December 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Future Giants is a life preparation not-for-profit organization that was founded in 2003 to educate, encourage and empower young people between the ages of 11-21. Although their primary goal is to ensure that each young adult entering the program becomes 100% literate, Future Giants is more than an after-school or mentoring program. It is a place where young men and women can receive 1:1 support and encouragement with real life situations.  Staffed mostly by volunteers and professionals, Future Giants serves as a temporary respite for young adults while helping them to reach their highest individual potential.

This holiday season, Future Giants is hosting a toy drive!

Help make Christmas memorable: Future Giants 2012 Holiday Toy Drive will collect new, unwrapped toys for children ages 2 to 12 through December 15th.  Donate a new toy to the Future Giants 2012 Holiday Toy Drive today!

Drop off:

Harlem Haberdashery

245 Lenox Ave (between 122nd and 123rd)

New York, NY 10027


Future Giants is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young people.


‘Tis the season to be giving…
