Mayor Demings Kicks off Annual Toy Drive
Orange County, Fla. – To kick off the season of giving in the spirit of a community that works for everyone, Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings recently launched the 2019 Orange County Mayor’s Toy Drive at the Nov. 12, 2019 Board of County Commissioners meeting.
This is the ninth year of the Toy Drive, which serves local children in need (from infants to 18-years-old). Residents are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to participating drop-off centers – no cash or gift cards are accepted. Donations will be accepted until Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019.
Donations drop-off sites are at more than 15 locations, including select Orange County Parks & Recreation Facilities and the Orange County Administration Office, located at 201 S. Rosalind Ave. in Orlando.
For a list of additional drop-off locations and more information, visit www.ocfl.net/ToyDrive. Since the Toy Drive’s inception in 2011, nearly 40,000 toys have been donated. Donations will be delivered to children in need through the Orange County Neighborhood Centers for Families, Wraparound Orange, Orange County Public Schools’ Homeless Program, United Against Poverty and U.S Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots.
Special thanks to WOFL FOX 35 for its continuing sponsorship.
