Sugarloaf to Key West 2018
Saturday, December 15th

Who is ready to walk some miles for Christmas toys for our Monroe County children.

Last year we had an awesome time walking 19 miles from Sugarloaf to Key West and raised over $7000. Several people participated in part of the walk and 23 people completed the whole thing.

You can help make sure every child has a present to open for Christmas. Ask your friends, family and enemies to support your walk by donating a set amount or a per mile amount (ex. $20 for mile you walk).

If walking is not your thing. there will be After Party at the end!!
Please share with anyone interested in participating!!

All proceeds benefit Holiday Helpers of the Florida Keys.
Holiday Helpers is a collaboration of agencies in the Florida Keys providing holiday gifts to children of families who are economically challenged working in the service industry, construction, tourism and water/based economy.

Holiday Helpers

Holiday Helpers of the Florida Keys asks the community to help bring a smile to a child’s face. As Monroe County’s economically challenged– the essence of service, construction, tourism and water/based economy — struggle to survive, sometimes juggling multiple jobs on weekends and late/night.

The Holiday Helpers Stores in Key West, Marathon, and Key Largo provides assistance through the holidays with gifts to those families in need.

Eligible parents walk through the store, empowered by the ability to pick free, new toys their children will want instead of just allocating non-specific toys to parents.

For more information: 305.809.5000

Perfect Parent

A national adoption recruitment campaign—a partnership of the US Children’s Bureau, AdoptUSKids, and the Ad Council—promotes adoption from foster care and raises awareness of the 112,000 children and youth who are waiting to be adopted.

Built around the theme “You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent,” this annual campaign uses humor to illustrate that youth in foster care don’t need perfection; they need the commitment and love a permanent adoptive family can provide.
