Simply Red holiday event and toy drive at Axiom

Be a helper

Photographer Steven Hill holds toy drive Saturday

Steven D. Hill has children on the brain. As we noted when we profiled him this summer, the talented photographer and fashionista loves helping young people — as he did in an exhibit last August that benefited Vogel Alcove, an organization here in Dallas that provides vital services, material necessities, and developmental care to homeless children. Well, if children ever need someone looking after them, it’s during the holidays, so Hill is back with a toy drive that will deliver toys to kids served by Vogel Alcove, and also Kidscapes Foundation, which assists children living with HIV/AIDS and disadvantaged children struggling with obesity, through education, fitness and art.

On Saturday, Nov. 19, Hill’s Heads with Hearts foundation hosts a mixer (featuring savory bites, as well as desserts from the Cupcakery)  at the Downtown clothier Binzario from 7 to 9 p.m., and admission is just one unwrapped toy.
