RCYF's Annual Merry Memories Event Heads Into Its 25th Anniversary Year

Updated: Nov 23, 2022

RCYF is excited to host its 25th Anniversary of the Annual Merry Memories toy giveaway event in southeast Austin's Dove Springs community. This year's event will be held on the evening of Saturday, December 17, 2022.

A special evening Christmas Posada will also be part of this year's Silver Anniversary commemoration.

The 25th Anniversary Merry Memories will feature all of these wonderful activities:

  • Toy Distribution for thousands of children in Dove Springs

  • Illuminated Live Nativity with live barn animals and costumed characters

  • Luminaria Trail and holiday lighting

  • Children's Costume Contest with shepherds, sheep, and angels

  • Traditional Holiday Cultural foods including tamales, buñuelos, and champurrado

  • Live holiday music and performances

  • Family prizes and raffles

How can you help?

With the expanded event this year coupled with the challenging economic conditions, River City Youth Foundation is seeking extra support from the community. No help is too small. We are grateful for any assistance you can provide.

  • Donate. Help underwrite toy purchases and event operations which have increased due to our economic conditions.

  • Volunteer. Be a part of an enthusiastic group of hundreds of hearts and hands helping to create beautiful holiday memories the children will NEVER forget

  • Buy a toy. For those that love to shop, we have an online toy registry.
