The Town of Palm Beach United Way thanks the Palm Beach community for its incredible generosity during this year's 26th Annual Holiday Toy Drive.
The drive collected more than 1,500 toys and nearly $12,000 to benefit Palm Beach County children and families in need of extra support this holiday season.
Each year the Town of Palm Beach United Way partners with the Palm Beach Daily News and Town of Palm Beach Fire Rescue Department to collect toys for children in need. This year’s drive began November 18 and ended December 9. Palm Beach residents and employees filled the town’s central fire station with piles of toys, including bicycles, sports equipment, board games, trucks, dolls, science kits, books, Lego boxes, arts supplies, Play-Doh, robots, nail polish and so much more.
This year, the new, unwrapped toys will be distributed to children at Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA), YMCA of The Palm Beaches and YMCA of South Palm Beach County.
The YMCAs distribute toys to children of families on financial assistance and AVDA distributes them to children living in shelters whose parents are survivors of domestic violence.
“These gifts and donations will brighten the holidays for hundreds of children. The Palm Beach spirit of giving is truly amazing.”
thank you for bringing hope, joy and laughter to hundreds of children this holiday season.
