Wells Fargo and Walmart Pitch In to Make Kids Wish Network’s “Holiday in Holiday” Event for Tampa Bay Area Charities a SuccessPosted in Press Releases on October 27th, 2011
Holiday, FL- National children’s charity Kids Wish Network will host their “Holiday in Holiday” event for Tampa Bay area charities this December and was given a generous grant from Wells Fargo as well as a number of bicycles to distribute from Walmart.
The recent downturn of the economy has forced an increasing number of children and families in the Tampa Bay area to seek assistance from shelters and various local charities. Unfortunately, this same downturn has also created difficult circumstances for the charities themselves, and Kids Wish Network wants to help.
In December, Kids Wish Network has invited 20 different charities and shelters from all over the Tampa Bay area to their headquarters in Holiday to pick up two pallets of toys each for the children served by their facilities. The boxes in each pallet will be filled to the brim with all sorts of brand new toys, games, clothes and other necessities that have been donated by some of the top manufacturers and distributors from around the country. In total, Kids Wish plans to distribute approximately a half million dollars’ worth of toys and gifts to these local charities.
In support of this outstanding effort, both Wells Fargo and Walmart have stepped forward to help make the event even more special for deserving children in Tampa Bay with a generous grant from Wells Fargo and a number of bicycles to be given to each facility from Walmart.
For children in need around Tampa Bay, this holiday season is sure to be a joyous one.
“We are so grateful that we are able to help our local fellow charities,” said Barbara Askin, Director of Kids Wish Network’s Distribution Center. “If there is any way that we can help them reach out to these deserving children, we will always be here to provide assistance, especially in these tough times.”
