December 1 – December 14

The Center for Health & Wellbeing is hosting a holiday gift drive benefitting New Hope for Kids, a Central Florida organization with the mission of supporting children and families grieving the death of a loved one. Visit the Center for Health & Wellbeing and give the gift of happiness this holiday season by “adopting” a child from Eatonville, Maitland and Winter Park from the New Hope for Kids giving trees. All gift donations are then gifted to children living in those communities.

How to Participate:

Visit the Center, take a tag off one of our three giving trees, and donate the new and unwrapped items at the CHWB Welcome Desk or Crosby Wellness Center Member Services Desk during regular operating hours. Or, stop by the Gift Drive Workshop Table Friday, December 1, through December 14, from 10 AM – 2 PM.  

*Toy donations must be new and unwrapped. If you are unable to find a specific item the child is looking for, use your best gifting judgment and look for a similar item or one you think the child would like.
