Holiday Drive For Children In Need
Tummies to Toes is looking for diapers, formula and shoes of any size. All items donated can be dropped off at all HyVee and all the Callaway Bank locations in Columbia. The donations can also be dropped off directly to The Rainbow House.
The Rainbow House is a Children’s Emergency Shelter, Regional Child Advocacy Center and Homeless Youth Program that gives service to abused and neglected children, as well as families in crisis. They have been housing children for more than 20 years.
Although the shelter accepts donations throughout the year, Shelter Director, Kristi Turner said the shelter receives the most donations during the month of December. Turner said she hopes the items donated during this time will help the shelter throughout the year.
Marketing Director, Brenda Jackman said, "Many of the children arrive with only the clothes on their back". The shelter counts on donations from people within the community to help give necessities to these children.
The drop off bins will remain at the locations until December 20.
