2009 Toy Drive

Who would have ever imagined during such tough economic times that folks in Central Florida would open their hearts and wallets in such a big way for kids they don’t even know?! We’ve always realized we have the best supporters in the world, but you have amazed us once again by providing over 2,700 gifts through your donations of toys and financial support of our 2009 Toy Drive. Because of your generosity we were able to bring smiles to the faces of over 500 children in our grief and wish programs (the most kids ever!) and smiles to their parents and caregivers as well. More than ever before, we heard “if it wasn’t for New Hope for Kids my children wouldn’t have anything under the tree this year.”

New Hope for Kids is grateful to everyone who participated in our 2009 Toy Drive, either by donating or by collecting toys at your place of business. We’d like to thank the following groups and businesses, as well as the countless individuals and families who provided gifts for our kids:
