Get Ready for the 14th Annual Merry Memories Holiday Event!

November 16th, 2011 by Mona

The weather has finally dropped out of the triple digits and that can only mean one thing; it’s time to start getting ready for the holidays. It might only be November, but RCYF is already gearing up for the celebration of the year.

Join us on December 10 from 12:00 to 3:00 pm for the 14th Annual Merry Memories Event. Thanks to our partners, this is shaping up to be one of our most successful Merry Memories ever. But with more than 2,000 children expected to attend, we can use all the help and support from the community.

There are many ways to get involved this year. You can buy a set of holiday cards, sponsor a toy drive, or volunteer at the 14th Annual Merry Memories event. We are looking for people to decorate, distribute toys, run craft table, and support the community by spreading holiday cheer. Take a look at this video to see the holiday wonderland our volunteers were able to create last year.

Want to continue your involvement after Merry Memories? Contact us to Adopt a Family and ensure that all of the children at the center have a warm holiday meal to come home to this Christmas. Last year, 100 local families benefited from this program.

The 14th Annual Merry Memories is being sponsored by these partners:
Dell, MWM Design, Austin Fire Department, Amigos en Azul, ABC Bank, Kiwanis Club, City of Austin Parks & Recreation, and more.

For more information on sponsoring at Merry Memories or any other holiday opportunities, please contact Oné Musel-Gilley at PR at RiverCityYouth.org.
