The Caravan of Joy collects toys for South Florida kids in need

The season of gifts is here and NBC 6 in collaboration with Telemundo 51 launched the 19th Annual Caravan of Joy Toy Drive. The campaign collects toys and gifts for South Florida’s children in need.

The Caravan of Joy Toy Drive will give the toys to local organizations including Good Shepherd Child Care Center, Redland Migrant Children Center, Sagrada Familia, the Hialeah Housing Authority, and the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center.

Our stations collected a record amount of toys during last year’s event, bringing the holiday spirit to more than 4,000 children. Seeing how these donations light up the faces of these deserving kids is the most rewarding experience, said Larry Olevitch, President and General Manager of NBC 6.
