A miracle is returning to Riverside’s Main Street on December 13, 2015! For the second year in a row, downtown Riverside businesses are spearheading the Miracle on Main Street: Toy Drive and Health Fair to spread holiday cheer and provide much needed resources to local families in need.
Last year’s event provided toys, health screenings, and a day of fun to nearly 800 families. This year, thanks to new partnerships Riverside Downtown Partnership (RDP), the event is poised to reach nearly 1,000 local children.
Starting on November 1 local businesses will serve as drop-off zones for toys and donations. On December 13, families in need will be invited to pick these toys up at the Miracle on Main Street Event, which shuts down Main street between 5th and 6th street from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Children will not only receive toys and clothes, but they will also take a picture with Santa Claus. The Inland Empire Chapter of the American Heart Association is providing a Healthy Kids Zone featuring games and prizes, while PrimeCare, Riverside Community Health Foundation, and Borrego Health will be providing free health screenings for adults and children in attendance. Grams will also be providing food and snacks.
All donations made to the event are tax-deductible. Donations can be made to Riverside Community Health Foundation Tax ID Number: 23-7276444
