Mariposas Extends Holiday Toy Drive



Mariposas Collective is extending collection for their annual toy drive until the end of the year. They are working in conjunction with the Cooper-Young Community Association and Memphis Made to serve about 150 kids and 30 babies. The group wants to ensure they collect enough toys for all of the children to receive a gift for Three Kings Day, on Jan 6, 2021.
