All throughout Fall, REACH members will be collecting toys for the United against Poverty's annual Toy Drive! REACH members will be collecting toys from all different high schools in Central Florida. These collected toys will be sorted and sent to United against Poverty's winter sale, which is then sold at a lower price than you would generally find in a supermarket. These donations are sold to underprivileged families, to give them the joy of shopping for their own goods and toys! As an organization, we collected 260 toys and raised $395!
REACH Harbor House and Frontline Toy Drive 2016
In the winter months leading to the new year, REACH members from different high schools in central Florida collected toys to donate to Harbor House and Frontline Outreach. REACH members also sorted the toys into different categories from action figures and dolls to educational games and books to be donated to underprivileged children in need of a toy to brighten their Christmas day. Altogether, REACH collected 1342 toys, breaking last year's record by over 300 toys.
REACH Harbor House and Frontline Toy Drive 2015
Throughout November and December, REACH members collected toy donations from Winter Park, Cypress Creek, University, Lake Nona, Olympia, Freedom, Dr. Philips, and Lake Mary high schools. Together, REACH collected 984 toys and donated them to Harbor House and Frontline Outreach!
On December 20, REACH helped Frontline Outreach Youth and Family Center (a premier early childhood education center in Orlando or urban youth) to pass out toys and serve meals to underprivileged children. It was their first time working with Frontline, and they had a great experience. Click here for some pictures of the event, and here for a summary of the event.
During this year's toy drive, REACH was able to bless many underprivileged kids. With Cypress Creek High, University High, and Winter Park High all working to get many donations, we collected over four hundred toys!
