From Muirhouse to Gaza

Posted on 03/08/2014 by


soft-toysMuirhouse Community Shop is collecting toys for children in the Middle East as part of Edinburgh’s Toy Drive to Gaza initiative.

The events of the last few weeks have shocked the world, and it seems world leaders can do nothing to halt the killing and suffering. Now ordinary people are being urged to do what they can to support the population of Gaza in practical ways – and the Toys to Gaza initiative is one way in which the lives of Palestinian children can be made at least wee bit brighter.

Muirhouse Community Shop is looking for donations of toys which will be placed in a container and sent to Gaza at the end of August. In particular, they need:

Soft Toys
Balls of all kinds and sizes.
Skipping ropes, hula hoops.
Dolls clothes
Board Games
Building Blocks (Lego etc)
Toy animals
Drawing books
All art materials
Craft Material

Please don’t hand in other types of toy – the above items are easily packed, take up limited space, require no batteries and can be used for years.

Can you help? Please bring your donations to:

Muirhouse Community Shop
57 Pennywell Road
Open: Monday to Friday 9am till 3pm
