Help bring joy to Arkansas children!
The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center (MTCC) has partnered with the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) for the annual Robert “Say” McIntosh Stop the Violence Toy Drive. Unopened, new toys can be dropped off from Nov. 1 to Dec. 1.
Bring toys to MTCC at 501 W. 9th St. in Little Rock or to any CALS library branch in Pulaski County. The toys will be delivered to children by Dec. 25.
The toy drive is meant to bring holiday cheer to children and families in need and is part of the “Stop the Violence” movement.
Robert “Say” McIntosh is a philanthropist, political activist and community organizer and leader. He created Little Rock’s Black Santa Claus and has distributed toys to needy children for years. His charitable works have helped African American children, their families and homeless people. His activism brought to light the continued misrepresentation and absence, in general, of African Americans in Arkansas’s political process throughout the 1990s.
