Gulf Coast Toy Drive for Children in Need


Toys donated by GCJFCS staff for Children in Need. Toys donated by GCJFCS staff for Children in Need. The Holidays are a time of joy, happiness and togetherness. Though sometime it can be a time of stress and disappointment, especially for families that are struggling or in crisis. Gulf Coast Jewish Family & Community Services offers assistance to families in Hillsborough and Pasco County for children and families who are in crisis in the Dependency System.

Many of these children are often placed with relatives or family friends who struggle to make ends meet on a daily basis. The Holidays can be a challenge for many of these families caring for our children and Gulf Coast JFCS stepped up to the plate.

Many employees reach out to our families by taking an “Angel” home and fulfilling a child’s wish for the Holidays. Some of our employees gathered their friends or rallied their sports teams that created events ensure that our families felt they mattered this Holiday season.

Gulf Coast Jewish Family and Community Services insured that 50 children’s wishes came true, and that they were able to enjoy the holidays.
