The Pinecrest Police Department is conducting its second annual Holiday Toy Drive to benefit the Kristi House of Miami-Dade and the Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Kristi House provides a healing environment for all child victims of sexual abuse and their families, regardless of income, through prevention, treatment and coordination of services with community partners. Kristi House is dedicated to ending the epidemic of child abuse in Miami-Dade County by healing those who have been victims and breaking the cycle of abuse for future generations.
The mission of the Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation is to create awareness and generate philanthropic support for Miami Children’s Hospital, a licensed specialty hospital in South Florida exclusively for children. Collection boxes for new unwrapped toys in original packaging are located at the Pinecrest Municipal Center, Police Department Lobby, 12645 S. Dixie Hw., and the Pinecrest Community Center, 5855 SW 111 St., and Pinecrest Gardens, 11100 SW 57 Ave.
Toys will be collected through December 19, 2013, and delivered to both the Kristi House and Miami Children’s Hospital by members of the Pinecrest Police Department on December 20.
Together, we can help make a difference in a child’s life. For information, contact the event coordinator, Detective Paul Rivera at 305-234-2100.
