Deed #22 – Changing Lives for the Better – Holiday Party Toy Drive
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast provides one-to-one mentoring relationships to children ages 6-18 years old throughout the Gulf Coast of Florida in Sarasota, Manatee, DeSoto, Highlands, Hardee, Charlotte, Lee, Hendry and Collier counties. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast holds itself accountable for children in its program to achieve measurable outcomes, such as educational success; avoidance of risky behaviors; and higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships. The organization provides children facing adversity, often those of single or low-income households or families with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
Norton Hammersley is proud to participate in Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast Holiday Party by purchasing toys and clothing for several children in need from ages 6-18. We are also purchasing larger items to be auctioned off to the children at the Holiday Party. Tickets for the auction are given to the children the evening of the event which is held in mid-December.
