Broward Virtual School (BVS) Ambassadors of Hope Club, lead by students Hannah Galvis, Sylvana Galvis, and Julianna Morgan collected more than 100 toys this holiday season for the Children’s Home Society of Florida. Ambassadors reached out to BVS parents, faculty and staff in donating new unwrapped toys for children ranging from infants to teens.
“Celebrating the Holidays is amazing, but touching the lives of children is what the Holiday Spirit is all about,” said lead Ambassador Hannah Galvis. With the mission of embracing children, and inspiring lives, the Children’s Home Society of Florida serves a wide range of needs, from children suffering tragedies of abuse, neglect or abandonment, helping children find loving homes through adoption, and providing teens in foster care with life skills training, educational and career coaching– teaching self-sufficiency as they transition into adulthood.
“The compassion, enthusiasm, and generosity from all the donations received is a heartfelt reflection of what the Children’s Home Society gives to the children and families they serve and strengthen every day,” said Ambassadors of Hope Founder, Christopher Gates. “Hundreds of vulnerable children in Broward County hope for happy holiday memories,” says Rebecca S.E. McGuire, Ph.D., executive director of Children’s Home Society of Florida. “Thanks to the generous support of our community, children will be able to experience holiday joy and cheer.”
