Each year we start our toy drive with anticipation and a bit of nervousness wondering if we’ll be able to provide holiday assistance to the families of New Hope for Kids. And each year the need for help during the holidays increases. The financial struggles of the families in our grief and wish programs are relentless in this fragile economy. We are pleased to report that hope and generosity are alive and well in Central Florida! Our 2010 Holiday Toy Drive was a great success. Countless individuals and businesses contributed enough toys and financial donations that we were able to distribute 2,815 gifts to 569 children. Thank you, Central Florida. Your compassion for the children in our programs is inspiring and overwhelming!
