BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — As numerous families struggle ahead of the holidays, many parents and guardians are worried about how they will buy gifts for Christmas. A local organization is stepping in to help.
The local Gay-Straight Alliance Clubs at high schools across Bay County are collecting toys to deliver to the Department of Children and Family.
These clubs across Bay County Schools are collecting new and unwrapped toys for the next two weeks.
They are accepting toys for children up to the age of 18. They plan to give the toys to children that are served by DCF.
“So, on the 14th we’re going to have a big presentation. Hopefully everyone will be there to have the GSA present the toys to DCF and the DCF will be giving out the toys that we gathered to the kids that they’re working with this year. It’s really exciting.” said LGBTQ Center Volunteer, Kelley Caspary.
If you would like to donate a toy, you can drop it off at any Bay County High School or the DCF Office on 15th Street in Panama City through December 14th.
