HOLIDAY HEROES TOY DRIVE
As a part of caring for some of Orange County’s most precious citizens, Mayor Teresa Jacobs’ Holiday Heroes Toy Drive is once again bringing the region together to make the holiday season brighter for children in need. Now in its seventh year, Mayor Teresa Jacobs’ Holiday Toy Drive begins on Tuesday, Nov. 14 and collection ends on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017.
In keeping with Orange County’s Neighbors Helping Neighbors philosophy, citizens are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys for infants, children and teens during Mayor Teresa Jacobs’ Holiday Heroes Toy Drive. Since the Toy Drive’s inception, more than 24,200 toys have been distributed to local children.
Last year, the region collected more than 7,000 toys for area children. This year, we hope to collect even more.
Mayor Teresa Jacobs’ 2017 Holiday Heroes Toy Drive lasts until Dec. 14, 2017.
Mayor Teresa Jacobs’ Holiday Heroes Toy Drive is made possible by the countless hours donated by volunteers and the generous support of our partners.
WOFL FOX 35 Orlando is the official media partner for the Toy Drive. FOX 35 has donated airtime, including special live segments during their morning show Good Day Orlando.
Your donation will benefit children in need through the help of the following organizations: Orange County Neighborhood Centers for Families, United Against Poverty (formerly the Community Food and Outreach Center), Orange County Public Schools, Wraparound Orange and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.
