Amigos For Kids, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing child abuse and neglect, and Ford Motor Company Fund joined forces, once again, to share in the spirit of giving with the Amigos For Kids 25th Annual Holiday Toy Drive. As the organization’s first major event in 1992, Amigos For Kids annual Holiday Toy Drive has grown into a gift-giving program that fulfills thousands of holiday wishes for underprivileged children.  For 25 years, the effort has brought the community together to create awareness about child abuse and neglect, and to spread Holiday cheer by collecting and distributing toys for needy children. The toy drive kicks off on Sunday, December 11 for a daylong caravan featuring Santa Claus, local celebrities, community leaders and volunteers making stops in Florida City and Little Havana.  In 2015, Santa’s community leaders and celebrity helpers included: Ana Maria Canseco, Ximena Cordoba, Andrea Escalona, Boris Izaguirre, Carmen Jara and Felipe Viel to name a few.  These celebrities, along with over 200 Amigos volunteers, participate as the organization grants Christmas wishes such as a visit to a police station, a heartfelt momentum of a loved one who has passed, tickets to sporting events, Christmas trees and much more as published in their website. After distributing toys to over 300 children in Florida City’s Branches of Love, the caravan continues to Jose Martí Park where 200 more kids will receive gifts.  Toy distribution will then continue in Broward on December 12, and throughout the rest of December ensuring all children receive their specific gifts and special requests before Christmas. The Annual Holiday Toy Drive serves as a component of Ford Motor Company Fund’s community relations program, “Operation Better World.”  Ford’s nine-year partnership with Amigos For Kids highlights its commitment to enhance educational opportunities, automotive safety, human services, and quality of life to the South Florida area.
