On December 15, 2016 the NAACP leadership held a toy drive and Holiday Reception. Gifts were collected during the first two weeks of December and disseminated to needy families on Thursday December 15, 2016. A total of 100 gifts were collected. 59 were given out to the NAACP community while the additional 41 were donated to the South Lawn Community for the 2016 Holiday Toy Drive on Wednesday December 21, 2016.
The Holiday Reception took place on the same day as the NAACP toy drive. On Thursday December 15, 2016 from 6pm – 8pm the NAACP leadership hosted an open house / holiday reception as a thank you to the community, supporters, and members for a great year of advocacy! Community members, NAACP Members, family and friends all ate, drank, laughed, participated in an epic mannequin challenge, and had an all around good time!
