Richie's Toy Shop - January 2019
Threads of Change
Richie's Toy Shop is hosted at Threads of Change, a Berks county foster closet. The 'Toy Shop' includes a brightly decorated space where children can play while their foster parents 'shop' for clothing and other needed items. The 'Toy Shop' is stocked with gently used toys that children are invited to take home with them if they wish.
The toy shop also includes a closet filled with new toys. When children newly arrive to foster care they are invited to select a new toy from the closet that is theirs to keep. Richie's Wish Fund will continue to keep this closet stocked with new toys to ensure children entering care will continue to have access to toys.
