  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL (1888PressRelease) December 06, 2019 - The toys will be distributed to at-risk children and foster children at their annual Children’s Holiday Fun event to be held later this month at downtown Clearwater’s Winter Wonderland. Hundreds of presents are needed for local foster and adoptive children. Those interested in donating can bring a new unwrapped toy to the CCV Center, located on the corner of N. Fort Harrison Avenue and Drew Street in downtown Clearwater.

    Since 2014 families from foster organizations like the Children’s Home Network, Eckerd Connects and the Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parents Association have taken part in the celebration.

    This year’s event is set for December 21st starting at 1:30p.m. An estimated 300 gifts will be collected and given away at the event. There is no cost to attend the event. Foster families – or families needing a little extra help this year – can R.S.V.P. directly to the CCV Center or through their foster parents association.

    “I remember the joy that my children would experience when I gave them presents on Christmas. I do this toy drive because it breaks my heart to know that some children, only 30 minutes away from my house, won’t otherwise get that joy on Christmas.” said Pam Ryan-Anderson, Executive Director of the Clearwater Community Volunteers. “To provide that joy to the kids who would not have had that is priceless. It’s what Christmas is all about.”
