December is a time for giving, and Wellington residents and businesses are already helping those less fortunate by supporting the fourth annual Hometown Holiday Toy Drive.
Each year, Wellington has been able to provide holiday wishes to more than 250 local children, in addition to supporting the Kids Cancer Foundation, Home Safe, the Children’s Home Society and pediatric patients at Palms West Hospital.
Wellington hopes to bring a smile to every child in need this year with support from the Mall at Wellington Green, Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, local civic organizations and local businesses.
Residents may drop off unwrapped toys or make a contribution by Thursday, Dec. 20 at any of the following locations: the Wellington Municipal Complex (12300 W. Forest Hill Blvd.), the Safe Neighborhoods Office (1100 Wellington Trace), the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.) and Wellington Parks & Recreation (11700 Pierson Road).
“The holidays are about giving and helping those in need,” Mayor Bob Margolis said. “Our residents have always been generous in assisting those less fortunate. Your participation again this year is greatly appreciated as we celebrate this holiday season.”
