A&C Gold and Diamonds Holding Toy Drive for Wesley Community Centers

(SAVANNAH, GA) Craig Burgess, owner of A&C Gold and Diamonds, announces that his store will be collecting children’s toys for the Wesley Community Centers in Savannah. Toys can be dropped off between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the store, located at 9 W DeRenne Ave, until 11 a.m. on Thursday, December 18.

The mission of the Wesley Community Centers of Savannah, Inc. is to promote the economic, educational, and spiritual growth of women, children and families. Located in inner city Savannah, Wesley serves more than 7,800 homeless and low income women, children, and families each year. Wesley works to help people exit poverty and become self-sufficient.

“I wanted to select a local charity in Savannah to hold a toy drive for this year,” said Burgess, “Wesley Centers are so important to this community and underprivileged citizens that it was a natural choice to hold a fundraiser for their children during the Holiday season. We hope to give Wesley’s children some of their Christmas wishes and ask Savannahians to help us with this mission.”

Wesley Community Centers of Savannah has two nationally-accredited Early Childhood Centers: Wesley Early Childhood Education and Development Center and The Lady Bamford Early Childhood Education Center. In total, the programs have 124 children with over 100 children on the waitlist. Children can start in the program as early as six-weeks-old and attend until they are entering Kindergarten around the age of five.

Staff members of the Wesley Community Centers will pick up the collected toys from A&C Gold and Diamonds on Thursday, December 18 at 11 a.m.
