Christmas In July
Believe it or not, back to school is just around the corner. For many Broward County’s children and families in financial need, there won’t be any back-to-school shopping.
You can help by donating to our annual Christmas in July drive. For the entire month, we are accepting donations to help pack back packs for the upcoming school year mainly for toddlers to age 19, who have lost a parent(s) or guardian & in need of our support. One out of every 20 children aged fifteen and younger will suffer the loss of one or both parents. These statistics don’t account for the number of children who lose a “parental figure,” such as a grandparent or other relative that provides care.
The drive culminates with a FREE Back to School haircut for kids day. This will be a day filled with activities, entertainment, food, and gifts. We plan to serve more than 100 children in Broward County.
“Community donations will be more important this year than ever before,” says Gifts From Jada Executive Director, Keith Reynolds. “The rise children who has lost a parent or guardian, has left many families having to turn to public assistance programs this year for the first time in their lives, and oftentimes that means that children go without. Christmas in July helps to fill that need. I encourage everyone to give what they can.”
