Autism Angel TreeIn 2010 we raised over $2,400.00 worth of new unwrapped toys for 15 local families with special needs kids. This year we expect to have over 20 families.
If you have a special needs child and are a resident of yavapai county please contact us to sign up for the program.
How it works; We will have a tree in the store with the names of the children on the tree. You can pick a name of a child and receive a christmas wish list for that child and their siblings. Just purchase as many items as you want and return the unwrapped items to Cody Can. We will be distributing the presents to the families approximately 2 weeks before Christmas. We will be posting pictures and "thank you" notes on this website. This is a fun way to help local families during the holidays that have the extra financial burden of raising a child with special needs. If you are not a big shopper you can donate funds on the"How Can I Help" button on this website and we will do the shopping for you. Just type in "tree" in the notes. We are a 501(c)3. 100% of all donations received on the website go directly to the families.
