Spreading cheer just in time for the Holiday season, South Florida’s beloved non-profit organization The Little Lighthouse Foundation (LLF), is set to host its 14th Annual Holiday Toy & Meal Distribution on Saturday, December 16th from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m at Mana Convention Center in Wynwood. Making an impact to over 2,000 children from the underserved communities of South Florida this season, The Little Lighthouse Foundation has partnered with the Miami Dolphins, Hasbro, Aroma360, Global Empowerment Mission, Subway, Toys For Tots, Demesmin & Dover, We The Best Foundation, LaCroix, Hotel Collection, and many more for the esteemed toy drive.

Due to its outstanding growth and success, this year, LLF is taking over a larger venue – Mana Convention Center in Wynwood – transforming it into a winter wonderland, featuring a christmas tree, life-sized snowglobes, arts and crafts stations, photos with Santa Claus and many more surprises. Additionally, LLF is calling the community to take part in their new initiative to Sponsor Five Children – donating $250 for five children to experience and participate in the toy drive. The annual Holiday toy drive and meal distribution has become a staple in the South Florida Community, making a difference to both the children and their families for generations to come.

Prior to the main event, on Friday, December 15th, The Little Lighthouse Foundation will be preparing for the toy drive at the Global Empowerment Mission Warehouse (GEM) with its dedicated team of volunteers. Hundreds of volunteers will be gathering from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. to sort through all toy and game donations, as well as prepare meal boxes to be distributed to LLF’s partner facilities. With their deep commitment to spread joy and create lasting memories, The Little Lighthouse Foundation strives to put a smile on these children’s faces year-round, especially during the Holiday season.
