Kids Out Christmas Charity Gift Drive

About Kids Out Christmas Charity Gift Drive

Local businesses have spent the past few years supporting Kids Out with their Giving Tree and the community has overwhelmed us with their generosity and kindness during these appeals.

As you can imagine, due to the circumstances of 2020, the need is greater than ever, which is why both the All About Barrhead and I Love Clarkston Business Improvement Districts have come together to host the Kids Out Christmas Gift Drive.

Below you will find a list of items that the charity are desperately in need of to support families and children fleeing domestic abuse and in need across Scotland this Christmas - we ask that, if you can, you purchase one of these items to donate to the cause. Donations can be made to our van us directly in Clarkston Halls Car Park on Saturday 12 December or Barrhead Foundry Car Park on Sunday 13 December. We will have a team in those locations from 10:00-17:00 on both days and delivering all donations to KidsOut soon after.

The items required are:

• Board games
• Magic Sets
• Science Sets
• Construction toys or Playmobil
• Craft or Art sets
• Dolls and Superheroes
• Childrens Books
• Physical toys and games, such as footballs, diabolo, juggling
• Make-up sets, toiletry sets, hat/glove/scarf sets for older children
• Bubble toys/sensory balls/wooden toys
• Chocolate is always a winner for the kids too!

To ensure the safety of staff and the community, all staff will be wearing masks and gloves and hand sanitiser will be provided. We will ensure that necessary COVID measures are in place to ensure the safe drop off of gifts. We ask anyone that can wear a mask to do so whilst dropping their items off at our locations. We also must ask that if you are feeling unwell, you do not attend either of the donation drop points.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Kids Out Christmas Charity Gift Drive are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
