The Matthew 25 project, in conjunction with several partners, donated over $2,000.00 worth of toys to random kids at multiple neighborhoods in east Orlando.
All Christmas donations, from several churches and individuals, were gathered at Faith UMC Orlando, in Dean Rd during the month of December and were distributed by staff and volunteers on Saturday Dec. 23rd, 2017.
Neighbors passed the word around, as several pick up trucks filled with toys and volunteers gave away hundreds of toys to kids of all ages.
Among the neighborhoods that were impacted by the donations were: Lake Downey mobile home community (an area that was hit hard by hurricane Irma this past summer) and Dean woods.
Families celebrated the gifts as they gathered to welcome staff and volunteers into their communities.
The Matthew 25 Project is committed to continue to help neighbors and communities in east Orlando, and our presence, reputation and history continues to grow as we expand our reach to those that are in need.
Our thanks to all the volunteers that made this event a reality!! Special thanks to the folks at Faith UMC for hosting us, and helping us all the way!!
