  • The toys will be distributed during the December 21st Holiday event

The Florida International Bankers Association’s Women’s Leadership Committee (WLC), in partnership with the Next Gen and the Community Relations Committees, will be partnering with the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired this holiday season.

As they have done in the past three years, they will be sponsoring a Toy Drive, "so we humbly ask that you help us in our mission to bring holiday joy to the children served by this organization. The holiday events from the last years were true successes, which we would not have been able to accomplish without your generous support!"

All funds collected will be used to purchase the type of toys needed to fulfill the special needs of the children. The toys will be distributed by FIBA’s Committees to the children of Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired during the December 21st Holiday event. They ask that you please make your donation by December 13th to allow them enough time to buy the toys for the children in time for their holiday event distribution on Saturday, December 21st.

Babies and children are among the most rapidly growing populations experiencing vision impairments in the Miami Lighthouse rehabilitation programs.  The Miami Lighthouse has developed specialized programs for visually impaired children from birth through 13 years of age. This includes the recently launched new learning center for visually impaired children from birth through pre-kindergarten that will provide specialized early intervention and training to help “level the playing field” when these visually impaired children enter the public school system.

"Please assist us in bringing joy to the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired children this holiday season. We thank you in advance for your generous contributions. We wish you a blessed and joyful holiday season to you and your families." Concludes the WLC.
