Help Florida’s Homeless Youth Receive Holiday Gifts

HOLIDAY, Fla: Kids Wish Network is desperately in need of new gifts for the hundreds of thousands of homeless youth residing in Florida this holiday season. According to a new report released by the National Center on Family Homelessness, 2.5 million American children were homeless at some point during 2013, an increase of 8 percent from the previous year.

With parents concerned over safety and housing, providing gifts for the holiday season is a luxury they can’t afford. Without your help, these children won’t experience the joy of a new gift. Kids Wish Network is striving to provide every homeless child in the local area with a gift this holiday season.

Through its Holiday of Hope Gift Bank program, the charity will provide local organizations that work with homeless youth a pallet full of new gifts. But, with so many children in need this season, Kids Wish Network is looking for any company willing to donate new, overstock and discontinued product.

The program serves children ages 3-18 of both genders so all donations are welcome. The charity is looking for arts and crafts, building blocks, dolls, action figures, bedding, toy cars and trucks, and anything else you think would help provide joy to a child facing life-altering circumstances.

A new gift can provide these homeless youth some comfort during a time when they’re facing difficult, and often tragic, circumstances. Please help Kids Wish Network spread joy to the hundreds of thousands of kids in need this holiday season.

Last year, during its seasonal Gift Bank program, the charity distributed over $700,000 worth of new gifts and necessities to more than 30 local shelters, charities and other organizations. Kids Wish Network has a full Gift Bank waiting list and needs your help to fulfill these kids’ holiday wishes.

If your company manufactures or distributes toys, gifts, educational products, clothes, games, accessories, electronics, or other items geared towards children and teenagers, please contact Kids Wish Network by calling (888) 918-9004 or visit www.kidswishnetwork.org.

Every little bit helps, and everyone can make a difference to a homeless child this holiday season.
