Holiday Gift Drive 2015

Spirit of Giving and the Junior League of Boca Raton are proud to present the 14th annual Holiday Gift Drive. In collaboration with more than 35 local organizations, Spirit of Giving and The Junior League of Boca Raton will ensure that the holiday wishes of more than 4,500 children in Palm Beach County come true.
 
The idea of a gift drive began back in 2001 when Barb and Dick Schmidt (Founders of Spirit of Giving) asked their friends to bring a gift for a child to their holiday house party. The response was overwhelming and the rest is history. The Schmidt’s were compelled to continue their efforts as the needs were greater and greater each year. The enormity of the work involved with of collecting, sorting, storing and distributing gifts became so great that the Junior League of Boca Raton was asked to partner in the event seven years ago.
 
The Spirit of Giving Holiday Gift Drive is the leading organization in our community granting holiday wishes to children; it is a grand community-wide project and we cannot do it without support from our community.
 
This year, you can help make a child’s wish come true in the following ways:
 
• Sponsor a child by fulfilling a gift wish on a gift tag.
• Collect new, unwrapped gifts – we will provide the collection box.
• Make a cash or gift certificate donation and we will do the toy shopping for you.
 
Why is it so important to give a gift to a needy child? Many of these children’s families do not have the money or resources to gift them with presents during the holiday season. Donating a gift to a child in need will brighten their spirits and help make their holiday season special.
 
From now until December 12th, 2015, we will be collecting donations at the Spirit of Giving office, located at 261 N.W. 13th St., Boca Raton, Florida 34994.
