Recently I had the pleasure of meeting a lovely lady named Barbara from the Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club. As she was researching childrens charities to benefit their upcoming Christmas toy drive, she came across our website and decided to give us a call; everything fell into place following that.
Barbara and her colleague Gwenn came to visit us one morning in July and we took these nice ladies around our office and warehouse. We had fun showing them around and they were very impressed with our story, our wonderful programs and also the number of suffering children we reach out to on a daily basis. Although we are a national charity, we are also very involved in helping out our local area, which also happens to be the resort’s area, as we are practically neighbors!
I am very pleased to say that the Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club decided that Kids Wish Network will be the beneficiary of their upcoming toy drive which will run from December 1st to December 15th. They have already helped us out greatly by promoting our “Borders Benefit Days” and also our involvement with “Macy’s Shop for A Cause”. I cannot wait to receive the toys & gifts from their toy drive, I just know it will be extremely successful! Many, many smiles will result from this exciting partnership – which is what it’s all about! 🙂
Stay tuned…I will keep you all posted…
