Toyland Joy

“Coming to Toyland, it didn’t look like struggle. There were kids my age and toys and music. I was so excited when I got a starter jacket. I picked it out, but getting it wrapped to have a gift to open, it fills you up.

I was 7 or 8 when I first came here with my mom. We were struggling with our living arrangements. It wasn’t until I got older that I realized what we were going through and
how hard it was.”

Now a young adult, Travon volunteers during Center for People holiday events in appreciation of the help his family received when they needed it most.
