Once again, this year, there is a group trying to make it better for kids in the Poughkeepsie area.  The John Flowers Christmas Wish will once again be distributing toys to children for Christmas.  Named after the late John Flowers, who put together and organized many charity events each year in the City of Poughkeepsie.

What does the John Flowers Christmas Wish do? They are collecting new toys and clothes for children in the Poughkeepsie area.  Of they are still looking for toy and clothing donations, but what they are in need now is wrapping help.

This year, wrapping will be held at the Poughkeepsie Plaza in the old Rainbow store. Dates for wrapping are December 12, December 14, December 19, and December 21. People can also drop off toys or clothing on those dates as well.  Wrapping will take four hours from 4pm to 8pm. A ton of toy donations are collected by boxes that have been set up around the area.
