The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Mission: To serve the local community through toy lending services and open play spaces in a safe, friendly environment where children of all abilities can come together.
Vision: Texhoma Toybrary will provide a space where children approximately ages 0-10 can come and borrow various toys for a set length of time and return them to check out new items. Additionally, families are welcome and encouraged to come and open play with large items in addition to any items available. Parents can sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or talk with other parents while the kids play in a safe environment. The types of toys offered would be sensory and developmental with a selection of adaptive toys for differently-abled kids. These would include indoor and outdoor toys, as well as board games.
Over the next three years we aim to become a staple support to families in the local area. We will strive to contribute to the community through social functions, networking, and reinvestment of funds into continually building and developing new strategies to meet childhood development needs.
We plan to be a member of the USA Toy Library Association and are proud members of the Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce.
