Community Spotlight: Bel Mare Conducts Second Annual Community Toy Drive

Published Saturday, January 4, 2014

PALMETTO – In a continuing effort to bring holiday cheer to the community, residents of Bel Mare at Riviera Dunes conducted their second annual toy drive this past December. “With delight, we exceeded our expectations,” comments Anne Buchanan who orchestrated the Bel Mare campaign to collect toys. “Our ‘toy chests’ were filled beyond capacity several times over,” she adds.

 

The toys were delivered to the Palmetto Boys and Girls Club who hosted two holiday parties for hundreds of children including members of the Club, their siblings, and youngsters from throughout the community.

 

Both Bel Mare and Laguna at Riviera Dunes also recently organized its third annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, collecting a half-ton of non-perishable grocery items to enhance the holiday celebrations for members of the Palmetto community. “Between our annual food drives and our toy drives, we continue to share our spirit, good fortune and smiles with others in our hometown,” concludes Buchanan.
