We’re beginning fundraising for the Holiday Basket Brigade a little earlier this year for an important reason. As part the Tiny Hands Foundation’s 2017 Holiday Basket Brigade this year we will be providing the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Florida Keys with 200 holiday gift baskets filled with food and Christmas toys. We hope this gift will help to make the holiday season a little merrier for some of the children and families in the Florida Keys community during this trying time. This gift will be in addition to the 1,000 holiday gift baskets that we aim to provide to Sarasota and Manatee community children and families in need. I hope you will consider joining us in making a positive difference in the lives of community children and families in need this holiday season.

The holidays are rapidly approaching, as shoppers begin checking everything off their lists. I’d like to take this opportunity to raise awareness about the many less fortunate children and families in our community. This year 1 out of 5 children in Sarasota and Manatee counties are living below the poverty level. Together we can make a positive difference for thousands of underprivileged community children. I’d like to ask for your kind help.

Since 2001, The Tiny Hands Foundation has led annual charitable community initiatives benefiting over 55,000 children and families in need in our community. On Saturday December 16th 2017, 9am-12pm, at The Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota, The Tiny Hands Foundation (along with the assistance of hundreds of friends, sponsors, and volunteers) will assemble, decorate, and deliver 1,200 holiday gift baskets filled with food, Christmas treats, and toys to provide to our community’s children and families in need.

In order to meet our goal, we are reaching out to the community for your support. This is a wonderful opportunity to promote your company or organization and to participate in a holiday event to support our community’s less fortunate children. We invite you, your colleagues, and families to join us! This is a fun volunteer opportunity and volunteers of all ages are welcome. To learn more visit: http://TinyHandsFoundation.org/
