We wanted to take a moment to thank you deeply for being a part of our Hope for the Holiday’s toy event this year. 400 children were served, thanks to your amazing generosity. The holiday season can add stress to anyone, but it can be particularly challenging for those facing poverty. Buying gifts for your children is extremely difficult when you have pressing needs like food, rent, and electricity. The gifts you provided are a blessing not only to the children, but also to the parents who are struggling to make ends meet. We are very grateful to be able to partner with organizations like you, who are eager to serve our community and end the cycle of poverty in Orlando.

Our event was a success, and those we served were overjoyed to receive the toys you provided. It was a drive-thru model due to COVJD-19, so our members drove up to our campus, and then our volunteers would then find their preselected toys and place them into their cars. Between our wonderful volunteers and our grateful members, the holiday spirit was overflowing.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Thank you for caring and showing up for our neighbors in need during the busiest time of the year. Our mission would not be possible without your generosity. We hope you have an amazing 2022! We cannot wait to see what this new year brings.

Gratefully,

Lizzie Fredrick
