Daughters of Penelope Narcissus Chapter 289 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL held a Toy Drive to help children in Broward County have a great Christmas!
On December 21, 2020, President Judie Pappas and Past President Christina McGuirk delivered two carloads of toys to WestCare Village South in Pembroke Pines which is a nonprofit rehab center for women. At present they have 20 children, ages 3 months to 7 years that live in the facility with their mothers, and 200 outpatient families with children that they counsel. The Director, Beatriz Del Rio and the staff were so excited!
The generosity of our sisters, parishioners and friends who donated was amazing. We had a variety of toys, dolls, cars, trucks, activity sets, games, etc. for children of all ages along with 150 adorable unicorns, hedgehogs, llamas, dogs and cats stuffed animals that were donated to our Toy Drive by Mahi Shriners.
Thank you to everyone who helped make all these children have a better Christmas!!
