Holiday Toy Drive & Distribution

  • On Saturday December 16th, over 150 volunteers distributed thousands of presents to over 500 children and their families from Children's Home Society (Broward), Miami Children's Initiative, Lotus House, Miami Bridge, YWCA Miami, Chapman Partnership, Ayuda, Overtown Youth Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Special Olympics Florida.
  • Toy drop off locations were set up all around South Florida by LLF community partners across Miami-Dade and Broward Counties including Sprint, Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour, 1 Hotel and One Sotheby's. Additional toys were be collected at The Little Lighthouse Foundation's Holiday Party and Toy Drive the evening before.   

Children and families invited to participate were able to enjoy the Miami Children’s Museum free of charge, then join LLF volunteers in the auditorium to pick a toy. After getting their toys children and families enjoyed a Holiday Party in the museum courtyard filled with music by Girls Make Beats, dancing with Miami’s Dance Tech dance troupe, food sponsored by Subway, sparkling water from LaCroix and more!

A special thank you to our friends at Hasbro for donating hundreds of toys!
