As we approach Christmas Eve, there are only a few days left to drop off a new, unwrapped toy to be given to a deserving child.
The Palm Beach Gardens Police and Fire Joy Drive, in operation for more than 16 years, has provided toys, and in some cases basic needs, for families and underprivileged children during the holiday season. In 2016 nearly 1,500 children and families received gifts as a result of the Police Foundation sponsored Joy Drive.
The Joy Drive has several locations throughout the City where new toys, clothing and gift cards can be dropped off. Those wishing to make a financial contribution can make a check out to the Palm Beach Gardens Police Foundation and mark “Joy Drive” in the notes section of the check.
