4KIDS of South Florida provides a warm and loving shelter for children who have been orphaned and abandoned. That is why Banyan Air Service chose 4KIDS of South Florida as one of its corporate charities. Teammates contribute funds, volunteer at events and donate to their cause. Every year, Banyan participates in the Gift of Hope campaign. It is a toy drive with the hope that each child in need can have a special Christmas memory. Toys and gift cards are collected and donated to the organization.

Every holiday season, as we are preparing for gatherings with friends and family, many children in South Florida feel the most lonely. They have been removed from their homes or separated from their families. They do not look forward to the holidays because they are in an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar people. They are feeling afraid, abandoned and frightful of the uncertainty to come. This could be a very traumatic experience for a young child. They are able to find comfort through Gift of Hope during this time of need.

This year Banyan had the goal of collecting 100 gifts and gift cards. With the help of our customers and our teammates, we surpassed our goal and donated 76 toys and 55 gift cards, a total of 131 gifts. Great job to everyone who donated! Thank you for joining us in bringing warmth and joy to children in need this holiday.

4KIDS of South Florida is committed to providing a home for every child in crisis.
