This year has been a challenging time for everyone. While we are counting our blessings and have many things to be thankful for, some families are in need of extra support to celebrate the holidays in the way they deserve, and what better way to spread holiday cheer than to give to the Empowered Youth Holiday Toy Drive and help shower kids with love this season.
Empowered Youth has a goal to distribute toys and canned food to 100 inner-city children and families this year, with your help, and with the partnership of Momma's Kitchen in Overtown, Miami.
In addition to monetary donations, we are collecting toys and canned goods at the Empowered Youth Hub (20 NE 29TH ST) in Wynwood, Miami. Come drop off your items to the Hub Monday through Sunday, 11a.m.-3p.m., or on Friday and Saturday nights between 6p.m. and 11p.m., from now until December 19th.
The Empowered Youth Family thanks you for your generosity and wishes you and your loved ones a Happy Holiday season.
More about Empowered Youth:
Empowered Youth is a 501c3 public not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of inner-city, at-risk youth. Empowered Youth provides on-going support and opportunities to inner-city young men who have been or are at-risk of being in the Juvenile Justice System by empowering them to create lasting transformation and a positive life for themselves, their families, and their communities. The goal of our program is to create a ‘street-to-success’ pipeline through character development/life skills support and our “earn while you learn” job development program. We offer at-risk youth the possibility to learn culinary and entrepreneurial skills while receiving on-the-job training in our Vibe305 Café and on the Vibe305 food truck (the only-nonprofit food truck in Miami).
