CCSO Launches Annual “Celebrate With A Star” Toy Drive For Kids In Need

Post Date:11/15/2017 10:45 AM
star-ornament-2017The community is invited to join the Collier County Sheriff’s Office as we make the holidays merry and bright for some deserving Collier kids currently dealing with traumatic, life-changing events. 

This year’s CCSO “Celebrate With A Star” program will benefit children assigned to the 20th Judicial Circuit Guardian ad Litem program in partnership with the Voices for Kids of Southwest Florida (VFK) agency. 

There are more than 260 children currently living in Collier County who have been abandoned or are alleged to have been abused or neglected. Guardian ad Litem volunteers advocate for these children in the courts, the child welfare system and the community. Children in the program range from infant to 19 years in age. 

Visit www.voicesforkids.org to learn more about VFK.

Participating in “Celebrate With A Star” is easy. If you’d like to provide a gift for a child, just send an e-mail to media@colliersheriff.org and we will reply with a child’s age and his or her holiday wish. 

Or, if you prefer, you may stop by and select an ornament from the tree in the Human Resources lobby of the Sheriff’s Office headquarters, 3319 U.S. 41 E., in the Collier County Government Center. Each ornament has a child’s holiday gift wish. 

VFK prefers for gifts to be wrapped, but will also gladly accept unwrapped. Please make sure to securely attach the star provided to your donated gifts. 
The drive will officially begin Wednesday, Nov. 15. All “Celebrate With A Star” gifts must be dropped off by Friday, Dec. 1. If you have any questions, call CCSO’s Media Relations Bureau at 252-0604, or e-mail media@colliersheriff.org
