Annual Holiday Drive

Annual Holiday Drive


The Voices For Children Annual Holiday Drive benefits thousands of children in Miami-Dade’s Foster Care system each year.  Since 1989, this community-wide effort has ensured that every child in the dependency system receives a gift during the holiday season. There are many ways to be involved in the Annual Holdiay Drive: Donate, Sponsor a Child, and Start a Collection.

Please join us in celebrating this holiday season by donating to Voices For Children so that every child in Miami-Dades’s Foster Care System can have the holiday they deserve, because it shouldn’t hurt to be a child.

A gift now means:

  • $25.00       will give a toy to a child 13 and younger
  • $50.00       will give a toy to a child between the ages of 13 and 17
  • $120.00     will provide a youth leaving foster care with bed sheets, blanket and dinnerware to start them off on an independent path to success


Sponsor a Child

Your sponsorship of a child and your generous donation of a toy can bring a smile to the thousands of dependent children in Miami.

Toy donations are need for children between the ages of 0-17.  Donations should be new and unwrapped.  Donations are also needed for children who are leaving the foster care system and have nothing to start their own life.
