I want to introduce to an organization that is near and dear to my heart, New Hope for Kids. With a cousin who has worked here since I was a child, this charitable group feels like family and I have happily watched them make the faces of children in Central Florida light up for past twenty years. Take a look at this video to find exactly what New for Kids does.
Now that you know a little bit more about them, I want to share their toy drive wish list with you. Each year New Hope for Kids helps many families provide their children with gifts through the help of generous donors. Not only do they provide the gifts, but they try their hardest to provide gifts that the children have asked for, helping to keep the magic of Santa Claus alive. You can order from any of these wish list and have the items shipped directly to New Hope, allowing you to help out even if you are not local to Central Florida.
New Hope for Kids is busy helping many families during the holiday season with the Toy Drive, Thanksgiving Drive and more. Another great way to help out, if you are unable to monetarily, is to donate your time as a volunteer. You can view the volunteer schedule here and then download an application.
Now that I’ve told you how you can help New Hope for Kids help central Florida families this holiday season, I want to tell you about another way you can help New Hope for Kids. I recently nominated them to receive a $10K Tech Makeover from @TheBigReboot , all you have to do is vote for them and ask your friends to vote before December 25.
