Clearwater Community Started Annual Toy Drive.

annual toy drive

The Clearwater Community Volunteers started collecting toys for their annual toy drive benefiting the Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parents Association. Volunteers to collect and wrap toys are needed throughout November and December. 

National Adoption Month raises awareness and increases outreach concerning the need for permanent families across the United States. All month long, National Adoption Month events provide tools and resources to help individuals and families understand the process and learn more about adoption.

“While the month is meant to raise awareness, we decided to acknowledge and help the families that are already impacting foster youth” said Pam Ryan Anderson, Executive Director of the Clearwater Community Volunteers. “To us, the best way to raise awareness is to show dedicated foster and adoptive families how grateful we are for their dedication.”

Participation in Network

Since 2014 families from foster organizations like the Children’s Home Network, Eckerd Connects and the Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parents Association have taken part in the celebration.

This year’s toy drive will go throughout November and toys will be distributed to foster and adoptive families in the Clearwater area. The toy distribution will be help in the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center located at the corner of Drew Street and Fort Harrison Avenue.

Foster and adoptive families are welcome to contact the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center to register their family for the toy drive.

“We partner with the Clearwater Community Volunteers every year to plan the toy drive” said Dora Starling, President of the Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parents Association. “Some can’t foster a child but it is fantastic to see how yearly the community comes together to support foster and adoptive families in any way they can.”
