By the numbers: Rockwall Helping Hands Toy Drive a monumental success

ROCKWALL, TX (Jan. 3, 2023) The final numbers are IN! In December of 2022, Rockwall County Helping Hands was able to serve a grand total of 472 families during their 46th annual Toy Drive. Due to the outstanding generosity of the community during the holiday season, Helping Hands gave away 9,618 toys and 407 teenagers were each given $100 gift cards. That means that 1,340 children were able to receive several toys each, free of charge to the families.

The Rockwall County Helping Hands team was blown away by how the community united together to meet the needs of their neighbors in crisis.  Providing the gift of holiday magic and joy to children across the county. Thank you to those who spent hours volunteering with set up, assisting parents with toy pick up, the business that put up toy tags, and those who gave toys and gift cards. With a new year, comes new needs but Helping Hands is confident that when the call for help comes the community will answer.
