Annual Toy Drive Makes a Difference in the Lives of Hundreds of Children and Families
With the support of numerous individual donors, and in partnership with the Rotary Club of Miami, St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Coconut Grove, and the City of North Miami, hundreds of toys and hygiene kits were collected and individually delivered to families throughout South Florida during Food For Life Network’s and Care Resource’s annual toy drive.
“The toy drive was more important than ever this year. With many families affected by COVID-19, some needed a little extra support to make their holiday joyous and bright. Our toy drive is an annual commitment to our patients.” – Rafael Jimenez, Director of Social Services
Donor support for the Food For Life Network’s food pantry has increased over 3,588% in 2020. This increased support has aided in ensuring continued access to nutritional resources, both during and beyond the pandemic. We sincerely thank all the people who supported the pantry’s efforts, donated, and help bring a smile to a child’s face this holiday season.
