Holiday, FL – Though their mission of helping children and pediatric care facilities is carried out all across the United States, nationally recognized 501 (c) 3 organization Kids Wish Network saw that the difficult economic climate was particularly devastating for the programs and facilities in their own backyard: the state of Florida. Because of the growing needs this created in the state, Kids Wish Network and their band of “Guardian Angels” came to the rescue for these programs and facilities with over $190,000 worth of toys and gifts given through their unique Gift Bank program.
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. Here in Florida, the situation is no different. Holiday-based organization, Kids Wish Network, is constantly adding to their ongoing list of facilities that serve the homeless, abused, disadvantaged and underprivileged children.
Seeing that hundreds of local child care programs, shelters and facilities were struggling in this difficult economic climate, Kids Wish Network stepped forward and saw to it that approximately $190,000 worth of fantastic toys, games and other items were distributed to the Tarpon Springs Police Department, CASA, Arnette House, Path of Citrus County, Children’s Medical Services and PARC in November alone!
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. In other words, Kids Wish Network helps them to help the kids!
These Tampa Bay area recipients accepted their Gift Banks with great enthusiasm; they were both shocked and greatly surprised to receive such large amounts of high quality merchandise to give to the children they serve for the holiday season.
The folks of Kids Wish Network are only too happy to have made a difference in their neighborhood. As they continue to try and meet the needs of their community, the people at Kids Wish Network are also working diligently in continuing on their nationwide mission of helping bring smiles to the faces of deserving children across the country.
