Tim's Toys Project adopts 2 families each year, one in Newark, New Jersey, and one in Lumberton, North Carolina, and gifts then toys during the holidays season. The ages vary but anything from coloring books and dolls to gift cards are welcome and will be added to the items Sweet Candy Café has purchased for the families.
