The Jupiter Tequesta Hobe Sound (JTHS) Council of the MIAMI Association of REALTORS® (MIAMI) collected more than 500 toys for local families in need this holiday season during its first JTHS Young Professionals Network Toy Drive on December 15.
JTHS partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, which collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes them to less fortunate children in the community. Nineteen participating businesses in Palm Beach and Martin counties filled more than 14 JTHS Toys for Tots donation boxes. LEGOs, fire trucks, board games, stuffed animals and more gifts were collected.
“It fills us with pride to see how many local businesses came together during our first JTHS YPN Toy Drive,” said Lynne Rifkin, 2017 JTHS President and Realtor with Keller Williams of the Palm Beaches. “The holiday season can be a difficult time for families in need, and we hope these toys can bring smiles to little boys and girls in Palm Beach and Martin counties.”
