About Pride for Parents

Pride for Parents is an annual toy and gift sale designed to benefit hard working families during the holidays, hosted by multiple area nonprofit organizations and places of faith. Through donations of new and gently used toys and gifts, merchandise is offered to families at a discounted price. The concept is simple – to instill dignity rather than dependency. Parents are able to choose gifts for their children, and children receive gifts that their parents picked for them!
