Council 7289 Christmas - Posada Toy Drive 13 Dec 2023

Council 7289 Hilton Head held their annual Christmas - Posada Toy Drive and Party on December 13th, 2023.

Our DGK Frank Sheridan was our coordinator for this project. Our deacon and brother Bill Garrett talked us up from the pulpit and help us reach our donation goal. Our council really came together to make this an outstanding success. We had a lot of brothers who made this happen. 

We solicited donations of toys and mainly cash at our parish masses for 3  Sundays. We raised over $5000 plus donated  toys for the needy families and especially children of our parish. This mainly was used for our Hispanic community who received 95% plus of these toys and gift certificates. We also purchased ten $200 grocery gift certificates for very needy families. We also gave out a $25 grocery gift card to other families. The toys were distributed at the Posada celebration of our Spanish community about 12 days before Christmas.  We had some bikes, games, dolls, toys, and very popular soccer equipment this year.
