Kids Wish Network Ships Joy in Large Pallets to Children’s Facilities Across the U.S.

Posted in Press Releases on August 21st, 2009

Holiday, FL – Kids Wish Network  works to help children’s facilities across the nation as well as in their backyard with over $86,000 worth of toys, games and other wonderful items in the past week.
Kids Wish Network’s Gift Bank program is designed to bring joy to children at facilities such as hospitals, homeless shelters and many different specialized programs through the use of brand new donated toys, games and electronics from many of the top manufacturers nationwide. Once received by Kids Wish Network, these amazing items are distributed directly to the facilities and into the hands of thousands of children and teens.

With our country’s ongoing economic struggle, it is becoming more and more difficult for people to give, causing a chain reaction that is severely crippling charitable institutions nationwide. With such an increased need, Holiday-based organization, Kids Wish Network, is ready for the immediate distribution of their donations.
Just recently, Kids Wish Network shipped out two of their Gift Banks of toys and gifts, worth approximately $60,000 retail, to children’s hospitals up the East Coast: Presbyterian Hemby Children’s Hospital in North Carolina and Children’s Regional Hospital in New Jersey.
In addition, in their “backyard” of Pasco County, Kids Wish Network saw that local charitable program, SOLVE of West Pasco, was in desperate need of items for the mothers and children that they serve. Kids Wish Network stepped in with a donation of much-needed baby items, gifts, travel systems, strollers and toys worth about $26,000 retail. The people at SOLVE were so grateful for the large donation and found that they needed to take more than one trip back and forth to get all of the donation!

The folks of Kids Wish Network are only too happy to have made a difference and will continue to try and meet the needs of their community, as well as continuing on their nationwide mission.
