2020 Holiday DONATION Drive
The Holiday DONATION Drive 2020 is a revamp of The Holiday Toy Drive, a successful annual Toy Drive that began in 2017. This year it will be based solely on monetary donations and not the collection of physical gifts. Unlike previous years where toys and gifts were collected at over 200 toy drop box locations and distributed at a three day event, much like shopping at a store, this year will be very different. There will be three phases to the program. From mid-September until the end of October will be the fundraising phase where a goal of $125,000 will be achieved. Most of this is via the online platform, GoFundMe. When, and if, the goal is substantially met enough to continue, applications will be accepted online from mid-October through mid-November. After complete vetting of applicants, distribution of funds will be through digital format at the very beginning of December, allowing families to purchase online and receive gifts for children by the end of the month.
The Holiday DONATION Drive brought to you by The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™ is once again in partnership with “The Wayne County Ford & Bold Gold Media Holiday DONATION Drive Challenge”. Together, we will all strive to ensure that children in need, residing in Wayne and Pike Counties, are served by this local community effort.
