Give Kids the World Village and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots programs of Seminole and Osceola Counties have teamed up to make sure this holiday season is is just as bright for less fortunate children in the Central Florida community.
Every night through Dec. 18, the public can make a donation of new, unwrapped toys when they attend Night of a Million Lights, a socially-distanced holiday light walk-through happening at the Village through Jan. 3.
“The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program needs help now more than ever to ensure that every child receives a toy this holiday season,” said SSGT Ashley Jacques, Toys for Tots coordinator for Seminole and Osceola Counties.
Toys for Tots collection boxes can be found in Parking Lots A, B, and C, as well as the Whac-A-Mole game inside the Village, each night from 5-10 p.m. So far, more than 35 boxes of toys have been collected during the first two weeks of the event.
“We are privileged to collaborate with Toys for Tots to bring some joy and happiness to local children who would not otherwise receive gifts at the holidays,” said Pamela Landwirth, president and CEO of Give Kids the World. “We invite the entire community to come out and give generously in support of this wonderful cause.”
Tickets for Night of a Million Lights can be purchased at GKTW.org/Lights, but you’ll want to hurry – the event is selling out fast.
