Kids Charity of Tampa Thanks the Tampa Bay Community for Helping Us Fill the Wagon

Kids Charity of Tampa Bay would like to thank everyone in the Tampa Bay community for making our “Help Us Fill the Wagon” Holiday Gift Drive such a huge success.

Through your generosity, we were able to provide gifts for over 1400 children in the Tampa Bay area. These children include those in the foster care system in Tampa, Pinellas and Pasco counties, as well as young adults who have recently aged out of foster care.

Drop off locations were set up all over the Bay area for donors to drop off general gift donations, as well as gifts for specific children which were listed through a link on our website. 

Many individuals and companies sponsored specific children by taking a "tag" with the child's name, age and list of wishes.  Cash donations were used to purchase gifts for additional children - either those who were not sponsored or those recently entering foster care.

The annual Holiday Gift Drive is one of Kids Charity of Tampa Bay's community indicatives and was accomplished with only one part-time staff member, the Head Elf, and many wonderful volunteers from the community.  Thank you to this wonderful and generous community for helping make the holidays a little brighter for over 1400 children in the Tampa Bay area!
