HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS TOY DRIVE

Benefiting Toys for Tots & Central Florida’s Children.

The HopeNow Foundation and 9 Family Connections welcome you to join us.

Donate NEW, UNWRAPPED TOYS – NOW TO DECEMBER 24th

Toys will be given to Toys for Tots, children in local hospitals, emergency rooms and to families have been impacted by the economy.
We are pleased to announce the ‘Hope for the Holidays’ eighth annual Toy Drive to benefit children living in Central Florida. Lets all contribute a new, unwrapped toy for distribution to children of all ages. The holidays can be a particularly difficult time for the thousands of Central Floridians who can benefit from a simple hand up. This year, the need is even greater, as more central Floridians are relying on shelters as a result of job loss, home loss and other economic related losses. A gift can mean so much to a child who otherwise may have to do without. Thank you for your participation in this worthwhile endeavor and best wishes for the season.”
