HOLIDAY HEROES TOY DRIVE


As a part of caring for some of Orange County’s most precious citizens, Orange County’s Holiday Heroes Toy Drive brings the region together to make the holiday season brighter for children in need. Now in its eighth year, the Holiday Heroes Toy Drive will begin on Tuesday, Oct. 30 and ends on Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.

In keeping with Orange County’s neighbors helping neighbors philosophy, citizens are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys for infants, children and teens during the Holiday Heroes Toy Drive. Since the Toy Drive’s inception, more than 35,000 toys have been distributed to local children.

Last year, Orange County employees and local residents generously donated 6,320 gift items.

Partners


Orange County’s Holiday Heroes Toy Drive is made possible through the countless hours donated by volunteers and the generous support of our partners.

WOFL FOX 35 Orlando is the official media partner for the Toy Drive. FOX 35 has donated airtime, including special live segments during their morning show Good Day Orlando.

Donations will benefit children in need through the help of the following organizations: Orange County Neighborhood Centers for Families, United Against Poverty (formerly the Community Food and Outreach Center), Orange County Public Schools, Wraparound Orange and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.


Adopt A Fire Station


In 2012, Mayor Teresa Jacobs began the Adopt a Fire Station program for neighborhood groups, businesses and nonprofits who want to recognize and give back to their local Orange County Fire Stations during the holidays. Learn how you can give back to our local heroes by visiting www.ocfl.net/adoptafirestation.
