I am raising money for schools in our community that can't afford toys this holiday season. The money we raise will go towards buying new toys for the children in the community.
As most of you know, my wife works at a title 1 (80% of the students are considered low-income) elementary school in Delray.
Unfortunately, for the second year in a row they just found out that Toys For Tots is not able to help them this year. Many of the students at their school unfortunately don’t get to wake up to anything on Christmas morning.
Watching the student’s faces light up when they get to pick a brand new toy from the holiday elves every year has been one of my favorite things to watch since helping her the first year she was there, and for many of their students that’s the only toy they will get for the holidays.
Each year I have started a Toy Drive to support the children at her school. I’m proud to say that last year with only 4 days’ notice with the help of the Delray Beach Police Department and AT&T we raised enough to provide gifts to the school and every student was able to pick one present from the holiday elves.
Luckily we found out a little earlier this year and I have more time to gather toys. I’m posting this in hopes of reaching out to as many of you as I can, let’s help spread some holiday cheer for these kids. If you are able to donate any new toys please let me know.The goal is to get enough toys so that each child can pick one out this year.
