Annual Christmas Toy Drive – December 4, 2023
As it does every year, Christmas will come for the children we serve. Our Past President Gloria Gaughan will be the hostess of our Annual Christmas Toy Drive and Brunch that will be held on Monday, December 4, 2023, from 11am to 12:30 pm at Collier’s Reserve Country Club. Help us bring joy to the children of the Collier County organizations that Christ Child supports. Members and friends are asked to bring unwrapped gifts for the children of Fostering Success, Fun Time Early Learning Academy, Grace Place for Children and Families, Pathways, Providence House, and Youth Haven.
This year the wonderful brunch at Collier’s Reserve will be $50. Seating is limited, so please use the form on this page to register. Payment may be made either by credit card or check. Please RSVP by November 22.
If you have been collecting toys throughout the year, as many of our members do, please bring them. Toys, stuffed animals, books and art supplies are always welcome. The ages of the children range from infant to 12 years, but the majority are from infant to 8 years of age. You may otherwise prefer to donate gift cards from Wal-Mart or Target in denominations of $25. These will be distributed to representatives of the above organizations based on the number of children served. The program representatives will either give the cards to the parents or will purchase the toys that they think the children would like. Every year the number of toys and gift cards has increased!
If you prefer not to attend in person, we will have members collecting toys/cards at the portico of the Collier’s Reserve Clubhouse.
If you cannot be present, please mail your gift cards to our Tamiami Trail address so that they will be received before December 4 for distribution to the organizations at the Toy Drive.
If you have questions, please email Gloria.
