Local nonprofit holds ‘Holly Jolly Toy Store’ to empower struggling parents
HOUSTON – A local nonprofit hoped to empower local parents who may be struggling this holiday season. The Forge for Families hosted the Holly Jolly Toy Store to offer a chance for parents to shop for new discounted gifts for their families with the focus of giving parents dignity, honor and respect. Their gym was filled with hundreds of new toys and gift cards from churches and people all over the country. “[The gifts] have all been significantly discounted so what might normally cost them $100 at the store would only cost them $25 tonight,” Thomas said. “I already know when my son sees PJ Masks, he’s going to be super excited,” Warren said with a smile.
