Home / Holiday Toy Drive and Distribution

The Little Lighthouse Foundation held its 9th Annual Holiday Toy Distribution on Saturday, December 15th, 2018 from 1:30-4:00 PM at the North Shore Park & Youth Center. Over 5,000 toys were collected with the help of our partners at Hasbro, Samba Sol and over 75 drop box locations around South Florida.

At the event, over 150 LLF volunteers distributed toys to 900 children and families from Lotus House, Carrfour Supportive Housing, Chapman Partnership, Communities in Schools, La Salle Educational Center, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, Miami Bridge, Excel Kids Academy, Miami Children’s Initiative, Project UP-START, Special Olympics Florida – Miami-Dade County, Overtown Youth Center and North Shore Youth Center!

LLF continued distributing toys to hundreds of children from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami, Nicklaus Children’s Health System Careers, Holtz Children’s Hospital, Muss Park, Flamingo Park and His House Children’s Home. In total, over 2,000 children received gifts from LLF’s efforts within the community. Thank you to all our incredible volunteers, donors and supporters for making this possible!
