Each year, the employees of The Drying Company and their families hold a Toy Drive to benefit Child Development Resources (CDR). They bring in toys and diapers to deliver to CDR before the Christmas holiday so that the children they help can have presents to open on Christmas day.
Child Development Resources Serves families with infants and toddlers from birth to age three throughout Williamsburg, James City County, York County, and Poquoson, Virginia. They serve children who have disabilities or delays in their development, are at risk due to very low family income, have other risk factors such as premature birth, teen parents, or parental substance abuse, or need high-quality childcare and development services. They also offer assistance to expectant parents, teen parents, fathers, child-care providers, and other early childhood professionals.
CDR and their mission to give every child the best start in life is near and dear to us, as it has touched many of our lives in different ways. Each year, we invite our community to participate in our toy drive and help create some magic for the children and parents Child Development Resources helps.
